Help: chroot and network problem

Hello. I am trying to fix a broken update with chroot through live media. I have internet access in the live media, I can ping google, but when I chroot into my existing installation to update it again, I just can't connect and ping doesn't work. I'm really stuck. And I can't establish a cable connection at the moment, in case it's needed. What should I do?!

if you loose wifi juste after upgraded ,
it means drivers network ( or networkmanager ) breaks it

did you added other kernel linux , before trouble network ?

can you report

inxi -Fxxxz

No I didn't.

This adapter has very big problems in Manjaro. There have probably been more help requests with this adapter than most any others. Were you using the kernel driver or a proprietary driver installed from elsewhere.

Sorry to interrupt you at work @stephane

My suggestion would be to walk him through an install of kernel 4.18 if he has it in his pacman cache.
I'm thinking a kernel update broke this driver again.

Kernel 4.18 was working with this adapter and it wouldn't have received any backports as it's EOL, so it still may work.


Is that output current, because now that I look again, it says the adapter is "up".
