Your Minetest installation thinks that it is a shared, system-wide installation. That's why it's looking in /usr/local/share for Minetest files. This would be the case after using a prebuilt RPM package to update.

What folder are you keeping your server in?

There is a big difference between minetest and .minetest (dot-minetest)

If you are running the server in place, you must compile the game yourself, and use the following CMake options.

cmake . -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1

or it won't work. Perhaps this change with the update broke it. It's breaking because it can't find its files. Notice it also isn't finding the world you're asking for.

One thing to try is copying the world, the mods, and the game to your .minetest folder in /root.

i am doing system wide as root. i am on as the root user in terminal when i run my server, and the server is either installed with dnf or from a .rpm. i have tried almost every option with cmake on the source code b4 but it wouldnt work.

prehaps i can backup the world and get a new operating system. maybe arch. does pacman have minetest on it???

also would /root/.minetest be all i need for a world clone to a new system?

Yes, it does. Also, Manjaro seems to be getting really popular as a more user-friendly Arch derivative. Not that Arch is not user-friendly once properly installed; especially for a server it's actually pretty great I think.

Yes, Distrowatch is very useful to see which distros are up-and-coming. https://lwn.net/ is the other Linux distro mainstay, although some Arch devs hate it because it forced them to finally implement package signing a few years ago.

But remember not to use the Arch forum to ask about problems with Manjaro or Antergos. They hate that. Even more so than LWN. :-) No really, they do.

I've tried Manjaro Xfce in a VM on Arch a few days ago and liked it. If it gets some of the benefits of Arch to the, shall we say, point-and-click crowd, I'm all for it. They even have an official KDE version.

Oh I forgot, don't mention that systemd sucks on the Arch forums either. The Arch gods don't like it when their decisions are questioned.

The good news is that installing and running Arch is a piece of cake compared to its touchy forum etiquette. :-)

As I understand, this is due to the "Server announce" feature. This feature allows your server to be listed on the "Servers" tab on the main menu for all Minetest users. Although this is eventually desirable, try disabling it to see if the server will run.

In the minetest.conf file:

server_announce = false

When you say you've removed everything and reinstalled, what exactly have your removed? I know of several things you have to take out. Could you have missed something such as the .minecraft folder in $HOME ?
