This happened while.updating and what should I do about it. Im updating manjaro when it reaches to 103/128 and my cursor works it can move but nothing happens when I click something please tell me the solution and should I wait?? Should I restart ??
Please wait until the update is finished. Then reboot.
But I don't know when the update will be over it's frozen but the only thing I can do is move my.cursor nothing else than.that
Even the time is 30 minutes behind
If you press CTRL+ALT+F2 you will get to a TTY.
Login there and run the
When the update process is done, you can press
q and then
reboot to reboot the machine.
Nothing happened instead now it is actually froze I can't even move the cursor
Even the keyboards caps lock isn't working
Then you are going to have to hard reset - do you have multiple kernels installed? If so boot to another kernel in grub then restart the update in a terminal:
sudo pacman -Syyu
PS: Have a Manjaro USB handy.
Look I dont know if I have them.or not.im not so sure
Should I shut.it down and restart?or wait. More
Hold the power button in till it reboots. The machine is frozen.
From the grub menu select advanced options - look for another kernel there.
If I don't have a kernel what should I do
You should have another kernel, but if not try booting as normal - may work, then as @strit says have your install media to hand if it doesn't.
Can you remember the package it hung up on?
So basically if it doesn't work I need to reformat?
No, we use the install media to access the install and fix. It is called chrooting.
How do we do that I'm kind of. Newbie
I am not telling you - it may not be needed. You can search the forum if you want - for chroot
So just in case I'm gonna wait a few more hours as maybe the updates might be working in the background so after a few hours I'll reboot it and what should I try first the advanced.method or trying to boot it up normally
First try normally. If that does not work try the advanced -> Fallback kernel, if you don't have another kernel installed.
What could be the percentage of.it working and not
My bet is 50/50, since you don't know if the update finished or not.
Is there a possibility of the update working behind the screen
