Upgrades between yesterday and today

I've been trying upgrades between yesterday and today and have had the system break where it's hanging after the login page even after a successful full pacman -Syu today. I had to go back two snapshots to find one that would boot, but more worry to me is that each time I try to fix this (twice so far) the system creates a new snapshot and deletes the oldest. I show 7 total snapshots, the most recent 3 of which I know are bad. I'm running an update again, to try again, but I only have two tries (two more snapshots) left before I have would have to start from scratch.

Can anyone tell me some commands to try to see what might be going wrong beyond what I've listed below? from the below I was unable to gain any useful knowledge, but if any of you see something please let me know. As far as I can tell I seem to be having an issue with systemd-guest-config.service,

╰─λ mkinitcpio -p linux
/usr/bin/mkinitcpio: line 268: /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux.preset: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: Failed to load preset: `/etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux.preset'

Contents of the boot log from the last few boots, the most notable line I saw in this was
[FAILED] Failed to start systemd-guest-config.service.
Incidentally, subsequent boots seem to fail right where that service would have started up but might not have logged since I was going in to tty3 with cntl+alt+F3 on those boots.

[I] ╭─dale at dalegaruda in /var/log
╰─λ sudo more boot.log.1
--Note, truncated output due to forum limitations on size, this is only the boot showing the error from boot.log.1

What about kwin, I see kwin no kwin getting updated even though the rest is getting 5.21 :face_with_monocle: What version is your kwin? (pacman -Qs kwin)

Here is kwin:

local/kwin-effects-sliding-notifications 1.0.3-1
    Sliding animation for notification windows
local/kwin-lowlatency 5.20.5-1 (plasma)
    the compositor, with added stutter/latency reductions
local/kwin-scripts-forceblur 0.5-1
    Force-enable blur effect to user-specified windows
local/kwindowsystem 5.79.0-1 (kf5)
```    Access to the windowing system

Here is the problem I guess, do a sudo pacman -Syu kwin, replacing kwin-lowlatency :slight_smile:

My post was before your last editing.
No, no need to do (it's no harm, though).
The proper thing is

sudo pacman -Rd kwin-lowlatency

Great, thank you. I was just saving that edit when you posted, so I thought maybe that's what you meant.

Right now I am going to try a reboot to see if this fixed my problems.

After reboot I was back to being stuck after my login screen hung with a popup requesting me to open a wallet as noted in the other boot problems post. I rolled back to an earlier snapshot again.

Are you sure you tried to login to your user account and not Guest user?
Do you have Auto-Login enabled?
You may just click OK button, nothing in input entries, or enter your user password (I guess this won't work, but try if needed).
You can disable kwallet (temporarily at least)...

Yes I logged in with my user account. I don't have auto login turned on.

Check journal for errors

journalctl -b -p3

I'll redo the pacman -Syu kwin, then disable the wallet, then try rebooting again.

Restore your snapshot with Timeshift first

the bad one? and check the journalctl -b -p3 first right?

Trolling, right? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
Restore your snapshot that you selected to boot from grub.

Sorry, I was just getting confused. I actually didn't do that, I had just been logging in from grub to the one I knew worked, hadn't gone into timeshift to do an actual restore, although I did now.

sudo pacman -Sy extra/kwin
sudo pacman -Su

Replace kwin-latency (if still installed) and do update.
