Wifi interface suddenly down

Good morning, I'm having a very weird problem with Manjaro i3 (Linux listentothesilence 4.19.14-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jan 9 17:17:37 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux)

On Friday - last time I used my laptop - wifi was working flawlessly, connecting to wifi on startup automatically. This morning that behavious is completely gone, and I had to use ethernet to get a connection.

The problem is apparently that the interface is for some reasons DOWN:

3: wlp59s0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN mode DORMANT group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 7e:9e:eb:ba:95:b6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

If I try to take it up with

sudo ip link set wlp59s0 up

it outputs no error but nothing really happens. Tried to look under /var/log and dmesg for an error message but couldn't find anything (not sure where to look, so take this with a pinch of salt - could very well be under my nose).

Here is my iwconfig:

wlp59s0   IEEE 802.11  ESSID:off/any
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=0 dBm
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off

I'm quite lost if someone can lend me a hand in debugging this I'd be very grateful.

Thanks and have an amazing day.

First thing I would try, is install kernel 4.14 or kernel 4.20 and see if that fixes it.

Sounds like it could be this:
