Does installation size increase over time with the updates?

Frequently I get 1 GB of downloaded updates. My question is, does the old libraries get dumped and new ones replace them (so the installation size is close to the same size)? or this updates adds up on total size of installation every time?

Depends on how your cache is configured.

Under Pamac’s preferences:

Take note of the following cache options:

  • “Number of versions of each package to keep”

  • “Remove only the uninstalled packages”.

You can also clear out the cache manually by pressing the Clean button.


Great news, thank you!
