I see that I made a mistake in the mail subject. My apologies for that.

Thanks a lot Justin! My port is open in the bios and firmware. My USB 
keyboard and mouse do get recognized.

When I run `ls -ld /usr/lib/modules/5.5.11-arch1-1`, I get the following 

`drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Mar 24 15:26 /usr/lib/modules/5.5.11-arch1-1`

To me, that looks like a good result. The folder is filled with what I 
would expect in such a file.

The USB controller is recognized correctly by `lspci`, but that probably 
isn't very unexpected since my USB keyboard and mouse are functioning.

Thank you very much for thinking with me!
