Cannot upgrade with pacman: icu (75.1-1) breaks dependency 'icu<75' required by manjaro-settings-manager

Hello,
I’m struggling to make a massive update with pacman and trying to solve the icu (75.1-1) update.

I have tried to update the mirrors:

sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack && sudo pacman -Syu

I have deleted the orphan packages (I had issues with electron25 and electron22):

sudo pacman -Rs $(pacman -Qdtq)

I have manually installed libicuuc.so.75 downloading the tar, uncompressing it, moving it to /usr/bin and creating a symbolic link like said on the r/archlinux Oromis-Elda’s post title “libicuuc.so.75 - icu package update issues” .

The latest thing I’m trying is updating overwriting icu files with:

sudo pacman -Syyuu -overwrite "*" icu

At that point I receive the output saying manjaro is trying to install icu (75.1-1) and breaks dependency:

Any ideas on how to solve this?
Thank you!

Thanks for replying!
I have tried to delete manjaro-settings-manager but it fails because is needed by manjaro-settings-notifier. When I try to delete both, pacman says that manjaro-manager-notifier can’t be found.

❯ sudo pacman -Rns manjaro-settings-manager

I’m kind of new to Manjaro and arch world, maybe I’m not seeing something.

Oh! And I use i3 as a WM.

EDIT: My Bad, I had a typo on manjaro-settings-manager-notifier. Your answer solved the problem. Thank you! :slight_smile:
