VLC didn't work after the update. A quick reinstall fixed it though. Weird.

I'm surprised that Blender 2.77 beta version is being pushed into this update. One of the reasons I started using Manjaro was that the packages are always up to date (unlike Ubuntu, which has like a two-year-old version of Blender), but why a release candidate this time? I don't even see any official beta on Blender's homepage, just the official 2.76b and a release candidate. They are still waiting for bug reports for 2.77! So perhaps not the best idea to make it the official Manjaro version. I hope this will not become common practice and the future versions will be the stable ones.

It got pushed into Manjaro, because it is in Arch Linux repo's.

A smooth update on the desktop.

With the laptop, I got the following error when updating:

Code: [Select]
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
run-parts: /usr/bin/run-parts exists in filesystem
run-parts: /usr/share/man/de/man8/run-parts.8.gz exists in filesystem

run-parts: /usr/share/man/pl/man8/run-parts.8.gz exists in filesystem
run-parts: /usr/share/man/sl/man8/run-parts.8.gz exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

The run-parts was not owned by any program (-Qo) so I updated the system with ignore run-parts.
Rebooted and force installed run-parts.
The system seems to be running just fine. I hope this was the right course of action.

I would say so :)
Looks like your old version of run-parts had been installed without pacman, and the new one probably as a dependency of something else? in any case the new files will be there now and all should be well ^-^

Smooth update here.

VLC needed re-install only on 64bit machine.  Started fine on 32bit.

Unlike earlier poster, I have no problem with apacman after update.  It updates AUR fine

Thank you Manjaro team!

I left the darkness of the unknow to enjoy the transparency of Manjaro-OpenRC; in fact, I like to see where I step.

Concerning the update, almost perfect if it were not for a glitch. Kodi got updated to v16 Jarvis and mythtv and iptv addon pvr were not working, the first even not building. After some reading, I edited pkgbuild to change the branch from Isengard to Jarvis and this is now working.

What does not work is the update of libplatform-git, which I accept on the update manager gui, it says it's done, but keeps pending on the gui and the panel applet.

Just a small detail. All in all, I'm very glad I switched to Manjaro on my main production machine (a MacBook Pro)

Thanks
jss

After the upgrade, I got broken sound, system freezes and kernel panic in journalctl on the kernel 4.4.3-1. When loading a kernel 4.1.18-2 no this problems. Also, the system still can not be reboot\shutdown(wait 1:35s) due sddm-helper, change login screen theme does not help.
