(Solved) can't login in virtual terminal

Hi, i had a machine without updating in a month and after updating and reboot I can't login or switch in virtual terminal.
I've been looking the forums and i have seen similar problems, but not the same one i think.
i Never forced an update and never get an error from pacman.
I have /bin/login
and maybe no errors in dmesg
thank you in advance

What did you update?  What is your init?  What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Re: (Solved) can't login in virtual terminal

Thank you for your answers my mistake was for the update of filesystem package in the /etc/passwd file.
I just do a blind replacement ( yes, i know that im a bad guy sad  ....)
The solution was to replace the new one with the old one.
And after that again i did a blind update of filesystem but without bad results
Thank you.

However:

@Woofy What did you update?  What is your init?  What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

1: The problematic update was filesystem 2012.10-1 but is solved in 2012.10-2

2: I no longer use init, i use systemd since is it in the repos smile

3: 1


@Woofy: you're scary, and I suppose you know Why is a raven like a writting desk and why is dancing moskau that guy behind you?:)
Happy halloween

and thank you @sonoran you're my hero.
Cheers.
