Help with update issues and resulting boot problems

Ok so I have arch installed and can get through all the updating except for glibc..I know there are countless post on the subject and I have spent the past two days reading through them. I have also broken my system and have done about 15 re-installs trying to get through this. Also, after I update (excluding glibc) and re-boot I get the root device cannot be found error and am dropped to a shell.

What I am asking is, can someone PLEASE give me a straight forward answer on how to fix this stuff...I'm tired of reading and re-installing.
I'd appreciate any help you can give..

Try using the latest install media.

Re: Help with update issues and resulting boot problems

The glibc problem disappears with the latest kernel(s) when installed via the .iso from remote install repos as provided as options  in the install procedure.

Re: Help with update issues and resulting boot problems

If you're using the most recent iso, the /lib to /usr/lib move has already been taken care of, so none of those countless bbs threads (or the infinitely superior official advice from the devs) apply any more. Please post the exact commands you are using and the exact error messages you are seeing.

Re: Help with update issues and resulting boot problems

The problem was I was using my old installation disk from a few months back, so I downloaded the new one and it's all good now
