Troubles after upgrading Manjaro

Ok! I'm on it

I got errors

looking for conflicting packages...
:: xf86-video-ati and xorg-server are in conflict. Remove xorg-server? [y/N] error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: xf86-video-ati and xorg-server are in conflict (xorg-server<1.20.0)
Error: pacman failed!

is this during uninstall of video-intel? or install of video-linux?

please update mirrors and run update and then try again
sudo pacman-mirrors -f5
sudo pacman -Syyu
report any errors
remove xf86-video-ati (dont know why you would have this??)
sudo pacman -R xf86-video-ati
post `pacman -Qs xf86-video

It was during the install of video-linux

You need to update your system before installing drivers/software.

Ok. I'll do it.

One question
When I uninstalled video-intel I still can play videos. So it means that this driver was not being used?

from the looks of it you didnt have xorg-server installed and xf86-video-ati conflict with each other, so removing xf86-video-ati , make sure mirrors are in fact synced and pacman -Syyu runs without issue, you should be able to
sudo mhwd -i pci video-linux

DO NOT RESTART UNTIL ALL IS FINISHED

please stop playing videos while we are trying to fix video drivers :man_facepalming:

It is part of the update

yes indeed it is, seems your recent update was not so recent apparently
run the update.

it looks like youve customized yourself into quite a hole (albeit, a special hole :grin:)
did the update run successfully?

Yeah I'm downloading the packages it is about 1.2 gb

By the way. Thanks for help.
I was wondering if it is not possible to get some repositiories that could provide the packages I need for my previous version. Thus I wouldn't need to upgrade and wouldn't have troubles.

how to do usually update? pamac? pacman? what command?

pacman and yaourt. But now and most frequently pacman

Question

Last update I lose my desktop. I were not able to enter in the graphic mode. So I had to reinstall using an iso file. And then I saw that my system was running better in a previous edition. I reinstalled the kernel to the previous one 4.9 but it did not fix the problem.
There is somthing dark here?

yaourt is no longer maintained and is recommended not to be used. yay is a great alternative , its in the manjaro repo. stop using yaourt and be mindful of what you install from aur, if it conflicts with something you have from manjaro repo, its likely theres a chance it will cause problems/conflicts down the line .
when you update sudo pacman -Syyu so you know the database synced

dont reboot unless pacman update finishes without errors and you
sudo mhwd -i pci video-linux
post any errors

edit: why do i get the feeling that @kafka is staring into a black unresponsive screen right now? it wasnt me :innocent: .

What do you mean?
I always can recover my system if something fails. Don’t have nothing to lose
