When I update my system, if the update includes updates for the linux, linux-headers, and util-linux packages, upgrading the util-linux package ends my user session, preventing the pacman hook from running dracut to create new boot entries. The result is that, without manual intervention, my system cannot boot because there are no boot entries. This can be avoided by running yay -Sy linux linux-headers after the system update, but it seems like undesirable behavior. Any tips on how I can avoid having to use this workaround? And should I file a bug report somewhere, e.g. with pacman?
In case it’s relevant, I use systemd-boot as my boot manager.
Yeah, I wish I could explain better, but I’m not very knowledgeable. I just know that yay -Sy util-linux signs me out. I’m using KDE Plasma. Sorry for not mentioning that. I had known for a while that this problem was occurring when some package was updated at the same time as the kernel, and I’d originally assumed it would be a package connected to the DE, but trial and error suggests that the relevant package is util-linux.
