That would answer my issue yesterday, but raises another question.
What dictates if something is worthy of being put on the bulletin
board on the main website?
I added 2FA way back when to /etc/pam.d/system-login and that meant
that pacman placed a .pacnew file alongside the modified system-login
(as expected) on upgrade.
But the notification about this got lost in the sea of packages which
is on me of course. But seeing as this is a modification to a system
critical file can (and did) cause a complete lockout of accounts on
the machine due to `auth required` being the keywords put in place.
I would have expected this to be on the bulletin board about possible
manual intervention required.
Perhaps I just missed it under another title?
