Boot stuck at Graphical Interface

As the title says, my boot is stuck at ‘Reached target Graphical Interface.’ This happened after I did a pacman -Syu and I believe the kernel was updated. I did try to start sway normally but it errors out saying it is ‘Unable to create backendn any DRM deviceackend’

Heres the journalctl fail log:

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Looks like a network issue using vpn?

Turned off the vpn,
Now it stops at authorization manager - heres the new journalctl:

I’m not sure? You set it up so i guess go through the vpn setup?

Edit: Did you have to allow it through the firewall?

So i turned off the vpn and other issues, heres the new journalctl(ignore the tty2 login failure):

This really makes me think its a kernel issue

Link doesn’t work.

Edit: Are you sure the update completed properly? and did you reboot?

Yes and yes, thats when the issue happened, at boot.

You could always downgrade the kernel and headers to see.

sudo downgrade linux linux-headers

Select the previous kernel and headers that match.

Downgrading kernel did not work, Im going to see if i can manually downgrade everything that was installed on the system update
