[SOLVED] No network device is being detected

I have installed a lot of Pacman packages and overwritten some packages that were previously causing errors, but once I rebooted my laptop

the iwd stopped working with error "Start request repeated too quickly".

I tried to see with sudo rfkill list  but I got "cannot open /dev/rfkill: No such file or directory"

I checked with "IP addr" and it is not showing a wlan device but only lo. But I'm sure my wireless device is working as I could insert a bootable USB and access iwd from it.

network manager shows "No network devices available".

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That's far too vague. Please provide more detail. The more information you provide the better our chances of fixing things.

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

Post your pacman log as well. We need to see exactly what you did with pacman.

Pacman log:

cat /var/log/pacman.log | curl -F 'file=@-' 0x0.st

Journal log:

journalctl -b | curl -F 'file=@-' 0x0.st

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

Also compare "uname -a" and "pacman -Qs linux"

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

Here are the logs :

Journalctl -b
https://0x0.st/oFep.txt

pacman.log
https://0x0.st/oFe4.bin

pacman -Qs linux
https://0x0.st/oFeJ.txt

uname -a

Linux lx 6.1.6-arch1-3 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Mon, 16 Jan 2023 12:51:23 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Unfortunately pacman.log is saving as bin as it is large I guess

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

Did you bother taking a look at the output, specifically the version of the running and the installed kernel?
Edit #2:
Hint: you're booting from a boot partition, was that mounted when you updated the kernel?

Edit: there's also an enormous amount of broken libraries…

sudo LC_ALL=C pacman -Qkk | grep -v ', 0 altered files'

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

I think the boot partition was not mounted because after the iwd stopped working, I have to use live USB to access the internet  in chroot and then had done pacman -Syu  without mounting boot. I will now update with boot partition mounted.

I had done pacman -Syu with boot partition mounted and it didn't show any changes, uname in arch-chroot seems to show 6.1.1 though.

That's the kernel version of the install iso - it's meaningless itr.
You need to check uname when booting the installed system.

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

How *exactly* did you "update with boot partition mounted"?
From the installed system or the installation iso?
What did you mount where and in which order?

Re: [SOLVED] No network device is being detected

Thanks stan and everyone, to fix the version of the kernel that my system was running with the one installed. When I looked in the /boot directory, there were only three files. To fix this, I reinstalled linux, then grub-install, and grub-mkconfig.
