Gnome update to 3.36 black screen

Hi there.
Yesterday (25/03/2020) updated my system and gnome updated to 3.36. Later I found that I had to do it on tty 3, anyway ...
At first it worked, I even rebooted the system.
Today my system boots on a black screen after the login screen. I have the mouse on the black screen and can switch tty.
I found only old threads about similar issue.
I reinstalled the system and tryed to upgrade again this time on tty 3. It always go to that black screen with the cursor.
Caps lock and num lock lights turn on an of if I press them.
Have someone seen a recent thread about this issue?
Now I reinstalled Manjaro but can not upgrade.

Welcome :slight_smile:

Please post in- and output from Terminal

inxi -Fxxxrza --no-host

Please, use the </> button above the post entry box when pasting terminal output so it's formatted properly.

Do you search in forum
"black screen" ?


Thanks for answering.
I did some research on black screen, I found mostly 1 year old posts. I was hoping someone had the same issue now.

But on main wile I will dig a bit more.

inxi -Fxxxrza --no-host

Does the latest 19.1-pre1 boot on your system? That ISO includes the update already.
