Here’s an image of the GNOME desktop environment in all its splendor.
At the top of the screen you see the Activities overview and the top bar. The top bar provides access to your windows and applications, your calendar and appointments, and system properties like sound, networking, At the bottom of the screen is a panel hosting 6 icons: Show apps, Firefox, Files, gedit, Terminal, and Add/Remove Software (Pamac).
As with any operating system, the first thing needed is a system update.
Manjaro develops its own command-line and graphical package manager called pamac. It’s a very good utility, simple to use and reliable for installing and removing software. As the image below indicates there are lots of updates needed.
Manjaro doesn’t recommend using pamac for large system updates. Instead, they say big updates should be performed using the command-line pacman utility, whereas pamac should be used for smaller tasks such as installing/removing individual packages.
As a big update is needed, use pacman. Issue the following command in a terminal:
$ sudo pacman -Syyu
