I have been using Antergos on my laptop for about a year.
Yesterday I tried to update packages after having neglected to do so for several weeks . The package manager found some incompatibilities so I disabled all “community” packages, then those from “extra” and finally “multilib” as the problem persisted. So in the end I had only the core packages, and then only did the package manager agreed to proceed.
Once the update ended, I got an unusual message telling me that the number of packages was not matching (I don’t remember the exact content of the message, it said something like “25 packages instead of 21”)
I then proceeded to reboot but after the boot option menu, I get an empty black screen. I tried brutally turning off the computer and turning it back on, but that has seemingly no effect. In the boot menu, I tried all four options I have: “Antergos”; “Antergos - Fallback”, “Antergos - Linux LTS Kernel” and “Antergos - Linux LTS Kernel - Fallback”, but all lead to the same black screen.
I can open the GRUB commandline, but that’s about it and I have no idea about to use it.
Do you have any idea about what actions I could take to solve the problem?
