You literally don’t need to remove anything first. Pamac will take care of removing conflicting packages.

Thanks everyone, any optional dependencies I should install that are recommended:

Choose optional dependencies for manjaro-pipewire:
1:  easyeffects: advanced equalizer and effects
2:  pipewire-jack: Jack support
3:  pipewire-v4l2: V4L2 interceptor
4:  pipewire-x11-bell: X11 bell
5:  pipewire-zeroconf: Zeroconf support
6:  realtime-privileges: Realtime privileges for users

Enter a selection (default=none): 

Thanks for the time and help, it is greatly appreciated!

I never install optional dependencies unless I have a need for them, which I rarely do. Do you have a need for them?

Nope, just on a new laptop and doing a clean installation. So, I’ll skip them for now.
