I was running a full system update. Said update failed abruptly, with the last package modified seemingly being the removal of
glibc. Now, nothing works. System built-ins such as
cd still work, but on issuance of any other command, an error of the following form results:
bash: /usr/bin/COMMAND: No such file or directory
With some commands causing this error instead:
bash: /usr/bin/COMMAND: /bin/bash: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
I do not know how to proceed. I am scared to shut my computer down or to log out or to close my open terminals. I am using i3 and all keybindings for switching workspaces and the like still function normally, save for my bindings to open a new terminal or the like.
Is there a way for me to undo this package removal? Is that what caused this issue?
