Could not satisfy dependencies when I upgrade my dolphin

Hello! I’m trying to upgrade my dolphin (from 23.08.2-1 to 23.08.3-1)


but I got this error message:

❯ yay -S dolphin
Sync Explicit (1): dolphin-23.08.3-1
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: kuserfeedback5 and kuserfeedback are in conflict. Remove kuserfeedback? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing kuserfeedback breaks dependency 'kuserfeedback' required by kate
:: removing kuserfeedback breaks dependency 'kuserfeedback' required by plasma-workspace
 -> error installing repo packages

I’ve tried to remove kuserfeedback, but it just can’t. What should I do?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Welcome to the forum! :vulcan_salute:

In Manjaro (and other Arch-based distributions) you cannot update only one component of the system, because this will lead to an unsupported partial update state.

Update your whole system, like so… :point_down:

sudo pacman -Syu

The conflicts you are seeing right now are probably the result of an earlier partial update, and as I said, this is not supported. What you could try — I don’t know whether it will work — is reinstall plasma-workspace and possibly kate.

Why are you using yay if you only want to install a package from Manjaro’s repo? pacman or pamac cli would be the better tool for that.


They arent trying to install. They are trying to selectively upgrade…
