Not connecting to wifi as usual since recent upgrade

Hi All,

After a recent upgrade, I have observed that I cannot connect to wifi a usual. Most of the times, if I reboot, I cannot connect to the wifi unless I disable wifi, disable networking, turn off the computer and start again, and then turn on wifi and turn on networking. If I click on the wifi icon on the dock, it also does not show the list of available wifi networks.

Has anyone has experienced this? What might be going on?
My machine: Thinkpad X220i, 8 GB RAM, 320 GB SSD, running latest build of Archlabslinux
The output from inxi -N:

  Device-1: Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network driver: e1000e 
  Device-2: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] driver: iwlwifi 

Would greatly appreciate your advice in troubleshooting.
Kind regards,
Arindam Basu

Is this with NetworkManager?

Please post the output of

systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled
journalctl -b

The output of the second command will probably be very long so it may be better to upload it to a pastebin site and share the link instead.

Thanks @Head_on_a_Stick for your quick and helpful response.

  1. This file contains the output of the journalctl -b command:

  2. This file contains the output of the systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled command

Yes, sorry, I should have told you to disable the pager for the journalctl output:

journalctl -b --no-p

And in respect of your enabled services docker stands out as a potential culprit.

Does (temporarily) disabling docker.service fix your problem?

systemctl disable docker

Anyway, the (full) journal content should show exactly what’s happening.
