I’m unable to update using the GUI Add/Remove Software and I get this error message:
“unable to lock database
Failed to synchronize databases
Warning: installing openblas (0.3.23-3) breaks dependency ‘blas’ required by cblas
Add cblas to remove”
I did a bit of snooping around here for something that might be helpful and tried this in the Konsole:
“pamac update --force-refresh”
This failed to complete giving me the error message:
“Error: Failed to prepare transaction: target not found: podofo-0.9”
Does anyone here have any suggestions as to what I should do next?
That took a few hours to run. It did complete but there were a few errors and warnings showing when I scrolled back up through the CL. Now, when i attempt to update using the GUI I get the error message in this screen grab…
Sorry about the big screenshot for very little content. I guess it wastes a lot of bandwidth and wasn’t thinking.
I had already tried the terminal, and have just tried it again to receive this message:
“:: Starting full system upgrade…
warning: manjaro-hello: local (0.7.0-6) is newer than extra (0.7.0-5)
there is nothing to do”
Does this mean that I should just stop worrying about everything and carry on using my computer, or is there some kind of mess that I need to clear up first?
Sorry about all the questions. As you might gather, I’m no expert and generally tend to blunder my way through things.
