Yesterday, after more than 190 packages update, including nvidia video drivers, for some reason, x11-driver-video-intel was removed and not reinstalled. Also the package libva-intel, a x11(intel) depedency, can not be found in some repositories.
As a result, after reboot, no sddm login, only a black screen.
In recovery mode, XFdrake tried to download packages but there seems to be a $MIRRORLIST problem. No luck.
Using another machine, that have nvidia video card as its main video support, I’ve downloaded x11 and libva from
saved it in a USB flash and installed in the black screen laptop.
So, the point seems to be, what happened? How x11(intel) was removed without the new package downloaded and installed? Why libva-intel cannot be found in some repositories?
