Slow updates and shutdown delay

I just installed manjaro kde
Now I got some issues:
1- very slow shut down time(almost 7 minutes). I include all the images of my shutting down below
2- too slow update download speed (only with wifi, not when I hotspot my 4g network)
But the main one is number 1
It really annoys me
Thank you all in advance





First take a look at this so you can provide better info:

The updates thing is probably mirrors.

oh right
this is the output of iinxi -Fxxxza --no-host

The output of $ sudo dmesg was too long I can't copy it
So was the output of $ sudo journalctl

Doesn't look like you're up to date
sudo pacman -Syyu

It was getting stuck on sddm on shutdown so look for that.
sudo journalctl | grep sddm

Update first.

Yes you're right
I'm downloading the updates now
but it's too slow

Check your internet connection and update mirror list
sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

If that is not your normal internet speed and you have not experienced not such a slow connection when you were surfing, you might wanna retry after rebuilding your mirror config.
You can rebuild the mirrors with
sudo pacman-mirrors --geoip to use your country for geolocation or with
sudo pacman-mirrors --continent to use your continent for it.
The you could try again.

Thank you
I ran it but nothing happened
It's still around 20kib/s

Thank you
Isn't there something like main server?

edit: I'm using my 4g network, so it's not normal :sweat_smile:

Mirrors all over the world.

You might have to sleep on it. Can't really do much until you're up to date. And the update might just fix the problem if you're lucky.

If you're using a mobile hotspot you could try USB tethering instead, or vice-versa.

I disconnect and reconnect my network and re run your command
Now it's ok
1 or 2mib/s :slight_smile:
So I'm waiting until the update is done
by the way, sorry for my English I'm not native

Eventually the update completed
Now I should restart?
Or do something else to check if my issues are still there or not?

You should do a restart.
Because currently you are still running the old versions.
Then if the issue persists we will try to diagnose further. If it doesn't persist..... all is well?

Thank you so much:)
Ok I do a restart and reach you out if the issue persists

Unfortunately it still exists
first of all, it passed that A stop job is running for Simple Desktop Display Manager faster than before
But it took the same time on the others
and finally I get a really WEIRD error
I get this:


The weird part is that I get this error everytime I restart/power on my laptop
For a more detailed explanation:
1- I turn on the laptop
2- I got this error
3- Laptop will be turned off
4- Laptop will be turned on automatically
5- No error anymore!!!!!

Ok i have to admit I'm really confused now

edit: I googled it and found out it was an issue in BIOS. So i guess it's ok now
But the very slow shutting down time exists

The issue is that using -f5 will just ping 5 mirrors at random .. they might all be slow or far etc.
Please see the wiki page I linked in the first response.
To for example scan and sort all mirrors globally (and do the required sync and update)

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu
