[Architect] Unresolvable package conflicts detected: util-linux-libs and libutil-linux

Hey guys,

I have been trying to install Manjaro using the latest (20.0.3-200607) manjaro-architect release but keep running into an issue with package conflicts.

Now this happens after first signing up, then entering “sudo setup” and finally setting up an internet connection (Wi-Fi in my case). The process goes through a few transactions mainly updating its databases and all but then fails shortly after printing “…connecting to GitHub!”.

I have tried rebooting, changing flash drives, changing computers even! But nothing seems to work. I have then tried creating a bootable driver for Manjaro Architect 20.0.1, but I get the exact same problem.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix this?

Architect is available on any ISO, you’ll want to download a newer one like 20.2.1.

That worked, thank you!

I would have preferred using the more lightweight Manjaro Architect ISO, do you know why it hasn’t been updated in parallel with the other ISOs?

I’m not sure, perhaps @Chrysostomus could answer that one.

Same here. I just want to setup a small web server on a VM, and I don’t want to download 2G+ of stuff I don’t want.

Same issue here. Thank you for the workaround! Please consider not linking to the “broken” ISO until a fixed version is available.

Do pacman -Syyu without replacing linux56 packages worked for me.

After system upgrade setup work

A workaround for it exists by installing libutil-linux by pacman:

pacman -S libutil-linux

Then it will ask if it should remove the other package.
