Boot screen stuck on /dev/nvme0n1p5: clean, */* files, */* blocks

Yeah I’ll try a fresh install if I can’t fix this soon. Thanks for the help though.

OK, good luck!

We really don’t have enough information to know what the issue is why it’s not booting. There are really no logs or anything. The only issue shown is a flatpak error message i guess at log in? We have no hardware log. No boot log. etc…

Maybe the OP can post links to the following if it works? Has the OP done what @pebcak suggested in post 9 to remove quiet and update grub and reboot to see if there are more error messaging? I don’t see anything? :thinking:

inxi -Faz | eos-sendlog
journalctl -b -0 | eos-sendlog


sudo pacman -Syu libxau --overwrite '*'

In this case, it should be fine to run the above since all those files seem to belong to `libxau.

In the future, if you happen to have a similar issue, please refer to:


In my system:

sudo pacman -Rsn libxau
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing libxau breaks dependency 'libxau' required by flatpak
:: removing libxau breaks dependency 'libxau' required by libgtop
:: removing libxau breaks dependency 'libxau' required by libxcb

Removing those packages would in turn unleash a cascade of broken dependencies. Most probably something similar would happen on OP’s end.

To remedy “… exists in filesystem”, please refer to the link posted in my previous post.

Surely, there is something important missing there… Like pacman?

But as @pebcak noted, this is not the proper solution.


something is wrong here
error come from flatpak , so you should have checked with flatpak

and you are applying version pacman , version can be different !
