Can't Update Manjaro-Pipewire Because of Pipewire-Alsa

I am currently unable to update Manjaro-Pipewire because of a dependency issue with pipewire-alsa. When I try to update, I’m given the message below.

:: manjaro-pipewire and pipewire-alsa are in conflict (pulseaudio-alsa). Remove pipewire-alsa? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: unable to satisfy dependency 'pipewire-alsa' required by manjaro-pipewire

The problem here seems to be that pipewire-alsa is required by manjaro-pipewire in order to update, which makes it impossible for me to remove the dependency, but pipewire-alsa apparently also conflicts with manjaro-pipewire, so I am unable to update the meta package.

sudo pacman -Ru --nodeps pulseaudio pulseaudio-equalizer pulseaudio-jack pulseaudio-lirc pulseaudio-rtp pulseaudio-zeroconf pulseaudio-bluetooth pulseaudio-pa pulseaudio-alsa pulseaudio-ctl manjaro-pulse && sudo pacman -S manjaro-pipewire

are you using pacman or pamac ?

manjaro-pipewire is just a metapackage to ensure all the pipewire packages are installed

Depends On            : gst-plugin-pipewire pipewire pipewire-alsa
                        pipewire-pulse pipewire-session-manager

If you already have these packages installed manjaro-pipewire is no longer required and can be removed

pamac remove manjaro-pipewire

The problem was solved with Manjaro-Pipewire 20220217-2, as the updated meta package doesn’t conflict with Pipewire-Alsa.
