10 year Spring Cleaning

Hello,

This is a general type of question that may get flamed to death, but I really don't know how or who to pose this to besides the Arch forums:

I've been using Arch for a little over 15 years, and I have been using this current system for about 10.  In the beginning, my understanding was quite weak and I wound up ruining, or blindly reinstalling (or just overinstalling), creating symlinks to .so files that I probably shouldn't have, etc., etc., etc.

I've gotten better over the years, but I would like to know if there's a procedure or guidelines that I could try to follow to just give the whole system a sanity check and make sure that my system is in proper working order, rather than just appearing to be in proper working order.

I understand if this is too broad of a question for these forums.  Any insight would be appreciated, however, since I'm sure that I'm not the only one here who has reaped a great amount of insight from this wonderful operating system, even if it did bruise some the configs along the way.

Thanks!

Although I'd find it hard to believe that there's a chance you might be unaware of wiki entries such as those posted above, I will add one more link

EDIT: You might also want to check your systemd journal from time to time for anything amiss:

journalctl -p 3 -xb
