[SOLVED] init update broke bootup

I received notification of a list of updates.  One on the list was "gentoo openrc..." some such.. I did not notice the exact name of the file.

After the update completed it asked for a reboot.  Doing so resulted in a frozen black screen with cursor blinking in the upper left corner of the screen.

I did control-delete which gave me a reboot and I interrupted that at the choice screen and selected advanced Artix (the second choice of the two on the list) which did boot up successfully. 

Can I get some advice on what to do so that it boots normally on the regular Artix selection?  What file(s) do I edit, etc.

Or, can I undo the updates.. or should I wait for the next update which may have a file to fix this?

Thank you,

how you updated your system?

NEVER ask for reboot

The app asked for the reboot, saying it was required.  But I see the point of using the terminal instead of that Pamac. 

Thanks for the reminder.. that fixed it.  No more Pamac.   ;)
