Most likely. The method for starting the shell with the specific
settings for each mode (msys2/mingw64/mingw32) changed some months ago.

Nowadays a simple `pacman -Suy' should do the right thing. And IMO using
the updated binary packages is a good thing. (Although the Emacs
problems with ImageMagick started when MSYS2 upgraded to version 7 soon
after it was released. Those are the risks of being `cutting edge'. Arch
and Debian Unstable still are at version 6.9).
