[SOLVED] NetworkManager not finding any wireless networks

First time arch user, so sorry in advance for lack of knowledge. Apologies out of the way, after a fresh install of arch linux and GNOME, I attempted to switch from wifi-menu to NetworkManager, only to be greeted with "No Networks" while scanning for wireless connections. I've disabled my netctl profiles using systemctl, though it didn't seem to make a difference.

Output of 'systemctl --type=service':

LOAD   = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded.
ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB.
SUB    = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type.

35 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too.
To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.

I've managed to connect to the internet using netctl/wifi-menu, though as I said, disabling these doesn't seem to do anything. I'm assuming I've made some oversight but I've spent days working on this and scouring the wiki with no luck. Apologies for the likely poorly constructed thread, I'm new to this and genuinely don't know where to begin, and thanks in advance for any help.

What was the *exact* command that you used? I think you're supposed to use netctl(1) to manage the unit files.

Can we also see the output of

systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled --no-p

Re: [SOLVED] NetworkManager not finding any wireless networks

Please don't full quote unnecessarily, it degrades the readability of the thread.

How did you manage the space in "netctl@wlan0-JUSTIN SMELLS-2.4.service"?

Hmm, that doesn't show the netctl units hmm

Can we see

ls -lR /etc/systemd/system

Messing around further with netctl and disabling the profiles using it solved my issue, thanks a bunch for pointing me in the right direction, more than appreciated.
