Continued from here (
upgrade). On startup, I get this:
GNU GRUB 2:2.06.r380.g151467888-1
Loading linux linux
error file /boot/vmlinuz-linux not found
loading initial ramdisk…
error: you need to load the kernel first.
Minimal bash editing is supported. Is there anything I could do with that?
I’ve got a not too old timeshift bkup, if it comes to that.

You might need to arch-chroot into your installed system and update your system and perhaps also reinstall your kernels.
Please consult the wiki for how-to:

This is continued from
here. Basically, I can’t boot, so I’m following the suggestion to try arch-chroot. But apparently I’m not doing it right. Any suggestion?

First, please don’t keep creating new topics that are “continued”. Just use the existing topic. I merged these back together.
It should be:
sudo arch-chroot /run/media/liveuser/9f33797e-8d9a-49c8-8c31-65b8bcc228fa
You omitted the leading slash.

Having chrooted into my installed system, is there any diagnostic I could run to decide what to do next?

You probably need to use:
pacman -Syu linux
That will reinstall the kernel and trigger all the hooks which create the kernel image and the boot images.
