• uuid device not found boot error tty


    I updated linux with “pacman -S systemd” and then when I’ve restart, the system can’t start. This is the report:

    Headache

    In that shell my keyboard doesn’t work.

    I tried many solutions available on the internet forums but none of them worked till now.

    pacman -S systemd

    this is not an update this is installing systemd without any update…

    so why do you want to install systemd? or do you try to update system with this command?
    looks like you never updated the system before and now installed latest systemd without updating everything else… will need to startwith live-iso and chroot into system now for updates the system complete…

  • Next time, update your Antergos system with command

    pamac-updater
    

    If you insist on updating Antergos with pacman, the right command is

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    
  • @joekamprad
    Yeah sadly I figured out it late.

    startwith live-iso and chroot into system now for updates the system complete

    I also tried to do it but I am failed till now.
    Can you share start - end procedure of doing it.

    thanks you

    How to chroot: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/10096/nvidia-installer-b-drivers-prevent-from-booting/3

    It helps you getting the chroot working.
    Once you are chrooted, give terminal command

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    

    to update your system.

    Ok sir.

    But plzz now tell me how to get out of this problem now, I don’t want to loose data.
    or at least I want to confirm my that particular data is in /home or not. so I can fresh install if there is no way out.

    thank you

  • @arsahadali4
    You can, before chrooting, backup your data.

    Just boot with the USB stick, mount the right partition (either root or home) to /mnt, and mount another disk (drive b below) where backups go, something like this

    sudo mkdir /mnt2            # for backups
    sudo mount /dev/sdbX /mnt2  # backup partition on drive b
    sudo mount /dev/sdaY /mnt   # root or home partition on drive a
    

    then copy your data to the backup partition, e.g.

    sudo cp -a /mnt/home/"your-username" /mnt2/

    I tried it multiple times before but When I try to run this command

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    

    I get long list error i.e

    error: failed retrieving file , community.db  from ........
    
  • @arsahadali4
    So when you are chrooted, you get these errors?
    Is there a problem with internet connection? Or mirrors are not correct?

  • Maybe it is best to backup your data first, as explained above. As a bonus you then have a backup. :)

    Then the easiest thing is to reinstall Antergos, otherwise there may be several problems that need to be fixed…

    multiple before and right now after your instructions.

    Thats the last way out, :( fact is I was also planing to fresh install before this problem.
    But i need data.
    Hope backup thing works fine.

    Thank you so much.

  • you can access data also simple from filebrowser inside Live-ISO

  • @joekamprad
    Oh yes! Much simpler with the GUI tools. I’m starting to see only the command line nowadays… ;)

  • @manuel

    GUI

    I am using arch-linux usb.

    My username is in home partition so my data is there right?

  • right… and rsync cp scp e.t.c. is your friend ;)

  • @joekamprad
    So still do I need to backup? or i can just install my linux in same partition. because my data is in /home partition.

  • @arsahadali4
    I think you should do backup. It is a good practice in general, and you may some day regret if you didn’t do it.
    But of course, it is your choice to make. :)

  • And it will only work if you have /home on a separate partition, as it will be overwritten if it is a folder under /

  • Thanks both of you
