Thank you so much for your help, i appreciate it.
sure… all in linux are only files ;)
Puh, that is at least some small relief.
if system boots, but only do not start graphicals you can just press [ctrl+Alt+F2] and will reach TTY2 where you can login from textbased and run command to proceed update:
sudo pacman -Syu
I can login via console, but get the following messages:
error: failed to update antergos (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update core (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update extra (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update community (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update multilib (unable to lock database)
error: failed to synchronize all databases
be more informative about how exactly you where starting updates.
I used the Standard Update-Process via GUI. There were multiple updates, because i didn’t update the system for maybe 7-10 days.
Looks like you have installed with encryption, so recovery is a bit more complicated.
I was afraid of that, but are there possibilities?
On a first watch it looks like incomplete update caused by a crash in between…
Is there a way to resume those updates?
Last time i used Antergos i had a weird problem, because my Firefox was suddenly only using a quarter of my screen, the rest turned black. I could move it around, but not minimize it and stuff, so i decided to turn the Laptop (Thinkpad X230) off and on again. I was loading updates at the moment, but pretty sure i didn’t started the installation.
Now i can’t log in anymore. Grub is loading, the the hdd-pw-request is popping up and i can enter my password. After that, i get some status-notifications as always when booting, but then it just turns into a black screen, that flickers.
There is nothing happening for minutes. Changing to Fallback or LTS-Kernel via Grub is doing nothing for me as well. DIdn’t try a live cd until know, because if the lack of a cd-drive.
I’m kind of a rookie, and i am out of ideas. Any help appreciated.
I fixed it! At least, i found the problem and a workaround.
I checked the /etc/resolv.conf
The entry ‘nameserver 10.22.0.1.’ is the problem. I edited it (using 220.127.116.11 at the moment, and now it works.
But i have no idea what happened, and why it happened.
dig +short myip.opendns.com @resolver1.opendns.com
With this command you can find if your machine is reaching external addresses in cli (will display your external ip) if does reach, the problem is something wrong with desktop environment config.
dig: couldn’t get an address for ‘resolver1.opendns.com’: not found
If me, I’ll check this items:
1 - gnome-control-center > network : vpn and proxy settings;
2 - gnome-control-center > wifi : in details of the connection, if dhcp config was changed in ipv4 and ipv6 tabs and security tab for security protocol and password;
There is no special configuration, all settings are standard / automatic
3 - /etc/hosts : check if something is wrong in hosts file;
There are no entries in the hosts file
4 - router : check how many addresses is available and check router logs if someone else discovered your wifi password and using your connection, (in my router config I set to range only 6 devices over wifi, my phone, my wife’s phone and computer and other 3 to my friends that comes often here) and last, which type of encryption is set in router and try a new password.
There is no problem with the router / network, i can recreate the problem in any other network.
Thats odd :)
I have no clue at the moment… And surely you try to remove settings and recreate a connection…
Yes, i deleted the connection and restarted it. Not sure what to do now, think i have to reinstall the system. But i’m afraud, that i will just run into the same problem again.
try livecd and if you got the same it is most likely something wrong with DNS resolution, may inside localnetwork or by your ISP connection…
There is no problem with a livecd (Ubuntu). But i don’t think that it is a problem with the network (other Devices have no problems) or the ISP (i can recreate the problem when i connect to another WiFi).
i have kind of a strange problem. My WiFi is connected, but none of my installed software can use the connection.
The os (Antergos, Gnome) runs for a few month without any problems. Yesterday, everything is fine, i shut down the computer, and now i have the problem. I restarted several time, also with the fallback system. I connected via LAN. I connected to another WiFi. I checked my router, the Laptop shows in the list of the active devices.
But still, Firefox, Thunderbird, Spotify, Software Updater, the Console - they all say i’m not connected to the internet. Also, Firefox and Thunderbird do need a lot more time to start.
Here is my ifconfig:

I tried some hint i found, like the ones below, but i don’t have any idea what to look for.
systemctl enable NetworkManager.service
sudo killall dhcphd
I’m open for all ideas. Next i will try to boot an live system to see if it is an hardware problem, but don’t know if that is even possible, because the connection to the router is there.
Thank you so much for your time.
