Add/Remove Software using too much ram


Whenever I try to download anything or just click the update tab it will use more and more ram, about 1GiB every 3 seconds steadily increasing until I close it or the computer crashes, just having it open or searching works fine until i do either download anything or click the update tab, the update tab will go up to 90% then stop.

It only started a couple of days ago I was looking to see if anyone else had this problem but I couldn’t find anything, I’ve tried uninstalling it to reinstall it in the terminal but i couldn’t find out how.

if it helps the software is
KDE Plasma Version 5.27.10
KDE Frameworks Version 5.113.0
Qt Version 5.15.12
kernel Version 6.7.0-0

And hardware is
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
16GB of ram
AMD Radeon RX 6800
Crucial 2TB P3 Plus
Gigabyte B450M DS3H

Known problem with pamac … seems to be sepcific to having the AUR enabled in the GUI.

(but so far I dont think any of the other users reporting problems has actually cleared it out … so it could also be specific to certain AUR packages and/or other conditions)
