Error on Attempted System Update (Unresolvable Package Conflicts Detected)? What should I do?

I just got this error, which I’ve never seen before. I’m not sure what caused it, or how to resolve it. Any advice would be appreciated.


~]$ sudo pacman -Syu
[sudo] password for $USER:

Long story short…

Thanks, @Darksky. That fixed it.

Also, @cscs, thanks for the wiki link.

Does anyone else find watching pacman downloading things soothing, like no-audio ASMR? :stuck_out_tongue:

I would rather watch grass grow.

You could add the “ILoveCandy” option so its like a little pac-man eating if that would help :wink:

Cannot tell if that’s a real thing or if I’m being trolled. :wink:

No really … in /etc/pacman.conf … you might even have it in there already but #commented out.

I have that. I like watching the little guy chomp away.

Truly, these are the secret ways of the Linux power user you cannot learn on your own…

How about “cal” or “cal 2050” commands

I’ve set that, but I can’t think of anything to download. :stuck_out_tongue:

Something to look forward to for later.

Thanks for your help.

of course in general … use curl for all options.
