[SOLVED] Login loop: back to login screen after logging in

Recently, I am experiencing problems with logging into my system. After filling in my password at the login screen and pressing enter, my screen turns black and some messages are shown and a split second later I am back at the login screen. There is one error among the messages:

[FAILED] Failed to start dhcpcd on enp6s0

At random, after retrying a gazillion times (actually closer to 20 tries), I manage to eventually login. What is wrong with my system?

I am running:

- lastest Arch
- KDE Plasma 5
- sddm

Thanks @Head_on_a_Stick! As mentioned in that thread, the workaround is NOT to use the Breeze theme for the SDDM login screen. Currently, there is a bug in the theme.
