[SOLVED] Boot partition fails to mount, unknown filesystem type vfat

It all started when I was trying to update my firmware, and fwupdmgr gave me the message

WARNING: UEFI ESP partition not detected or configured

I tried adding

OverrideESPMountPoint=/boot/efi

to uefi_capsule.conf, and when I tried to mount the partition I got the error

mount: /boot/efi: unknown filesystem type 'vfat'.

and the partition fails to mount. It worked at some point before.

Re: [SOLVED] Boot partition fails to mount, unknown filesystem type vfat

uname -a
pacman -Qs kernel

Did you update the kernel and not reboot (in which case you don't have access to the vfat module for the older, running kernel anymore)
=> reboot.

I ran pacman -Qs kernel and that seemed to work. Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Boot partition fails to mount, unknown filesystem type vfat

pacman -Qs is inert, it search packages matching the provided filter - the point was to see whether running and intalled kernel fall apart.
If you did reboot, that"fixed" it because it aligned the two.
