After some kernel turbulences: can i do some ordinary updates now !?

hi there good day dear Endeavour-Os- community

after having some issues in the last few weeks -( with the update - Options) some of you meant that my kernel is not the newest and i had to do some major updates and difficult steps to get all those things into better conditions

so here - the actual state of the notebook - just to get an overview before i start to do any other steps or updates -(which are necessary at the moment)…

does this look all right - and should i update in a general and ordinary way – and mehtod?!

I wrote this for folks who aren’t sure how to maintain their system, you may want to look it over:

Other than pacman -Syu . . . I don’t know what other way you would update?

EDIT: You can also run the updater from your Welcome App

You can just run

sudo pacman -Syu

Or you can use


If there are any mirror issues you can always update the mirrors from the welcome screen and try again or you could do that first.

Edit: The current kernel is 6.7.0-arch3-1 so I’m sure there should be some updates.
