Or can you just pacma. -syu and it will all be updated. I am ?worried about a outdated keyring if so how do I update that?
sudo pacman -Syyu
Yes you can use a little old iso but do know that the chances of something breaking are lot more in that case.
AFAIK those should be updated along the system only.
If you have Manjaro already installed you can simply update your system via
pamac upgrade or
pacman -Syu. ISOs we recommend the latest for fresh installations or first time installations.
I try to use the latest iOS
The more upto date you iso/install media the less updates there will be after installation. Generally an old iso will have a huge amount of updates and a much greater chance of manual intervention being needed
The only problem may be (especially on community ISOs) an outdated kernel [EOL].
So it should be one of the first steps to look if the kernel is [EOL] and eventually install a LTS-Kernel.
I usually keep the latest ones in order to avoid any issues.
yes I use update verssion then solve my problem
I tried an old iso of about a year old once… It left a stale taste in my mouth… Rolling releases are tricky if you install with an old iso you will get many errors. With things like Ubuntu you essentially reinstall new every 6 months and the repos change name for every iso ever released.
How is that easier than install once and just update from time to time? I installed my system like 2 and a half years ago and and I have not needed to do anything else than update every few weeks (even every few months could be fine).
With Ubuntu, you practically have to reinstall every 6 months, and the repositories change names for every iso issued.
Or 5 years if you use a LST release…
