Good evening Manjaro fans; and a Merry Christmas to all! I decided to spend time solving some issues but have become stuck and would appreciate your suggestions.

First i am unable to apply the latest update package that came out a few days ago. For the first time i must "choose a provider for libcl." ocl-icd (the default) or opencl-catalyst. I have tried both unsuccessfully. I get many errors of "failed writing body" and at the end nothing was updated, though the size of my update file has decreased by alot over successive attempts?

Secondly, at boot up i get errors "Failed to create new system journal..." "Assertion f failed at src/journal/journa,"
"Not enough disk space for core dump of 175...", and "A start job is running for Flush Journal to Persistent Storage." After 1min 30sec it says Failed and boot proceeds as usual. As this recently started, i am of the opinion it is related to my attempts to install update cited above.

Finally, yesterday i found a great deal on a used printer at a local thrift store. As you guys recommended Epson, it looked in great shape, and came with lots of extra ink, i snatched it up. When i dl the AUR drivers for Epson XP-300 it cannot create the required directory. I somewhat suspect this too is related to the above problems.

Any help sorting this would be much appreciated!
