SDDM doesnt start after discord manual update

Used sudo cp /user/downloads /opt/discord and overwrote all files.
PC crashed, unable to start SDDM on restart.
Updated pacman -Syyuu

Was this really the exact command you used? Cause i just manually updated discord myself and no problem here.
All i did was just delete the files that were linked into the /opt/discord folder from the update and then copied it over.
sudo cp -r /home/User/Desktop/discord /opt/ was the exact command.

What is the output of 'sudo systemctl status sddm'?

I reinstalled manjaro, backed up my files beforehand. Thanks for trying to help guys

I am confused why you would have done this...

Why wouldn't you just use sudo pacman -U on the package link from unstable, or swap to unstable to get the package update?

e.g.

sudo pacman -U https://mirror.clarkson.edu/manjaro/unstable/community/x86_64/discord-0.0.11-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Cause i wanted to see if i could?

sudo cp /user/downloads /opt/discord would not overwrite all files
missing option -r (or -R or --recursive) to copy sub-folders and files
