Atheros QCA9377 not working after updating

hello all!!
First of all yesterday a list of updates arrived of total size of 200.3MB. I updated it and after that i restarted my system but network manager is showing that there is no network connection (Wifi not connecting but for the time being surviving with USB ethernet). I have tried chrooting but that did not help. I was looking for similar problem which I am facing but I couldn't find. And also kindly suggest the most reliable mirrors which releases stable updates. Currently I am using Germany now. Maybe Some faulty updates were released and it came into my system and corrupted network manager. Kindly help before my laptop's battery is used by phone!!

Thanks

It would be important to know which packages were updated relating to the kernel and networking.

Try this command to pinpoint your latest updates:

cat /var/log/pacman.log | grep -i "ed linux\|mware\|twork\|dkms ins\|a-nm\|nm-c\|ufw\|wpa" | grep -v "head\|nvidia"  | tail -n 30

Please post all outputs in text form not a pic.

You need to downgrade the linux-firmware package to get your wifi working again. You are the 4th person to report this issue with this adapter.

This card seems to have issues with the newer linux-firmware package. Please do:

sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware-20180825.fea76a0-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

I really like that search string I wrote to query recent pacman install/upgrades. If anyone can think of other important networking components I should include in the search string please let me know.

cat /var/log/pacman.log | grep -i "ed linux\|mware\|twork\|dkms ins\|a-nm\|nm-c\|ufw\|wpa" | grep -v "head\|nvidia"  | tail -n 30

thank you so very much. It helped:blush::blush:

What about reliable mirrors which releases stable updates?
Which mirror should I use?
KIndly guide me in this matter

That is your own choice if you want a custom mirrors list.

I use:

sudo pacman-mirrors --country Canada United_States && sudo pacman -Syy

Otherwise this is usually good enough:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f 5 && sudo pacman -Syy

Please mark your thread solved if your issue is resolved.

@royaorpi: please test this new firmware package and report back:

sudo pacman -U https://manjaro.moson.eu/pool/overlay/linux-firmware-20181026.1cb4e51-0.1-any.pkg.tar.xz

It's working. Thanks a lot:grinning:
