Found Manjaro Linux (20.0.3) on /dev/sda3

I am having this when I do an "update-grub": Found Manjaro Linux (20.0.3) on /dev/sda3 and off course an entry in grub of "Manjaro Linux (20.0.3) on /dev/sda3".

So what is the problem?
Is or isn't there a Manjao system installed on /dev/sda3?
Please provide some more info.

Its not normal, I didnt have it.

EFI variables are not supported on this system.

Thanks for the info!

/dev/sda3 is your current root partition. So indeed you are right about that

for it to show up again in the Grub menu as if it were another system installed. I have to admit that I can't wrap my head around the issue. Hopefully other forum members looking at the data you have provided might have an idea.

There is a post about that in testing announcement I think..

And I think I have the same since yesterday, I see the grub menu and I think I also have a 2nd entry for manjaro.. but I never really checked and I'm not on my computer

I am away from my Manjaro box so I can't check. Was Grub package updated along the rest?

I will have to check tomorrow my update history..
I did not investigate I had other thing to do.. and my laptop was booting fine so. :wink:

[solved] I did another "sudo update-grub" and now is gone... I updated the kernel, maybe this was what is causing.

grub was not updated sine January..
after a kernel update it seems it detect a "2nd" manjaro, I tried to update the grub just after the kernel update without reboot it was still detecting the "2nd" manjaro, after a reboot and updated grub it was not detecting it anymore.. :thinking:
this happened only recently I think (before it was not showing me the grub menu).

I did some updates today, among other things, kernels but i didn't see this second entry in the grub boot menu. Wonder what is causing this, kind of weird.
