I don’t know if I have a problem, but for sure it’s a rather strange and new situation for me, but maybe because I’ve never had a rolling relase.
I update my distro every day, and yet today, out of nowhere, an update of almost 5 GB appears to me, surprising me, and even strange.
I haven’t updated yet because I’m waiting for your opinion, but is all this normal?
I also doubt that it depends on having changed kernels, because not immediately found them, but after about 3 days.
I have the latest LTS from Manjaro, the newest among the LTS.
I don’t know, if you need more info ask, I’m puzzled.
I forgot, if I need to update, should I do it from the package manager (add/remove software), Discover or both?
I noticed something else, but looking at the image, do you think the packages I need to update are newer, or is it downgrading me to older packages?
Would TTY2 be the normal terminal, or a particular terminal?
Could you post me the safest command to use to download updates from console?
Some time ago I read a discussion that using a command instead of a high one to update could do damage.
Anyway there is a difference between 800MB and 5GB, a lot of difference.
I should have less of your updates, as I recently installed Manjaro, and I haven’t even installed many software, I haven’t even had the time since I recently installed Manajaro on my computer.
Okay. I might be able to shed some light onto this.
The huge update in Pamac, can be because of flatpak, snaps or AUR packages pending for update as well.
Discover will show only the repo packages by default, and should be the same repo packages as Pamac showed you, until you update with one of them, and refresh the database in the other. (the reason why having 2 package managers can be confusing)
Oh God, I just realized a big difference that nobody had explained to me, thank you very much you were really precise and competent.
I install from GUI so I can install everything without having to install a bit here and a bit there, since from terminal (pacman) install only from repo, and from GUI (pamac) install also from other sources.
