So, I get to login window and I cannot get beyond that point, not in normal mode nor in advanced mode. My worst fears come true: I really didn't wanted to update, but since it was already 260 packages give it a chance...

> I don't know what to do next: I like rolling release model, I don't like to reinstall the system all the time... But, in the end of the day, every time I have to do a major update, I loose my system. It's the second time this year. It makes me feel sad.
> I like Manjaro, but it is very annoyng to have to reject updates, or have an update function that is totally useless, since every time I use it, I get my system damaged.
