Haven't updates for 2 weeks - network and Xorg are broken

Hello everyone.
Just updated my arch after ~ 2 weeks without even turning on my PC.
There's 2 issues I found:
1) startx don't work
2) ping 8.8.8.8 Network Unreachable

USB modem don't work(rtl8193eu driver) and USB tethering from my phone don't work too. Ifconfig don't even recognize my phone, but it recognizes modem as enp4so, but according to `lshw -c network` it using r8169 driver. Also when I'm trying to rebuild rtl8192eu driver with dkms it says: "Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel bla bla.
Consult /blabla/make.log for more information"

See the output of uname -a and pacman -Q linux (substitute with different kernel package if you're using a different one).

I think it was bad idea to remove default kernel?

I've compiled https://github.com/Frogging-Family/linux-tkg
And they were fine before this one pacman -Syu

Re: Haven't updates for 2 weeks - network and Xorg are broken

Maybe I can chroot into my system from archinstall and install linux and linux-headers packages?

Stop winging it and post the journal, not some picture.
I assume you've internet access from the iso, so you can use the tip in teh first link below to post it from teh console.

Thank you, this is useful!
Here's output:

Failed to open /mnt/@/var/log/journal: No such file or directory

And also:

# ls /mnt/@/var/log
pacman.log

There's "@" in path and idk why lol.
I just do

Re: Haven't updates for 2 weeks - network and Xorg are broken

What options are the root file-system with mounted with?  You can check /proc/cmdline from the installed system.  Is the system using btrfs with subvolumes?
How did you install Arch?

I mouth root with this command:

mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt

I can't check /proc/cmdline because I broke my grub when I tried to install linux and linux-headers from chroot. Is the system uses btrfs? It uses btrfs, and here's volumes:

It's not windows 95 but vfat.
The "@" there suggests you're using btrfs and might have /var in a subvolume?

I can't stress enough that Archinstall is not meant as a replacement for following the step-by-step official Installation Guide. Archinstall's target audience is not the inexperienced proto-Archer IMO.

The @log subvolume sure sounds interesting, so mount that and see whether your logs are there…

Re: Haven't updates for 2 weeks - network and Xorg are broken

well somehow i booted into my system.
i chrooted into my system from liveusb and installed default linux kernel
then i tried update-grub but it said something isnt mounted
then i googled error, mounted everything, mounted a little bit more, chrooted in system, update-grub, it said something about some folder doesnt exist, then google again, then grub-install /dev/sda (idk why sda but sdb is btrfs so it dont work with it), then update-grub and this worked! tho when i rebooted PC there was only default linux kernel. I booted it:my xorg and network fixed. But i think Xorg and network fixed only in default kernel. also my grub is kinda strange now:
 Grub customizer app
(no kernels detected).
I think rebooting now is bad idea. So im waiting someone to answer what i can do next

P.S. updated-grub again. Now i have default kernel but still havent other ones. tho i have them installed:

➜  ~  pacman -Qe | grep linux
archlinux-keyring 20230918-1
linux 6.5.5.arch1-1.1

Re: Haven't updates for 2 weeks - network and Xorg are broken

The head of the journal is missing, it's not even possible to say what kernel you're booting there.

then i tried update-grub but it said something isnt mounted

Please don't paraphrase, https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=57855
What's likely not mounted in that boot are boot partition and/or ESP

Oct 04 14:16:58 archlinux systemd[1]: Mounting /boot...
Oct 04 14:16:58 archlinux systemd[1]: Mounted /boot.
Oct 04 14:21:44 archlinux systemd[1]: Unmounting /boot...

If you're booting an old kernel, that'll fail because of the missing vfat module.

Well, you were paraphrasing the output of update-grub, were you not?

Did you mount the boot partition?

i paraphrasing output of update-grub because this error is gone and i cant reproduce it. If you need current output here it is:

Generating grub configuration file ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img
Found fallback initrd image(s) in /boot:  initramfs-linux-fallback.img
Warning: os-prober will not be executed to detect other bootable partitions.
Systems on them will not be added to the GRUB boot configuration.
Check GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER documentation entry.
Adding boot menu entry for UEFI Firmware Settings ...
done

Yes i mounted boot patrition and it was sda, not sdb. I dont remember exactly but i think it was

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/@/boot
