Failed to prepare transaction

Unable to install the most recent update due to unable to satisfy dependencies for:

‘gst-plugins-base>=1.18.5’ required by gst-rtsp-server
‘gst-plugins-bad>=1.18.5’ required by gst-rtsp-server

At the end of the error I’ll get a prompt “Failed to generate google-chrome information” but I don’t have Chrome or Chromium installed.

Any suggestions?

Remove this AUR package first, then try to update again
pamac update
once done, reboot, and if you need the gst-rtsp-server then build/install it again:
pamac build gst-rtsp-server

Thank you for your response. Changing gears and using the terminal I was able to update everything else to install (I usually use the gui pacman) except gst-rtsp-server file. When I try to delete and rebuild I get errors.

Trying to delete gst-stsp-server I get no file found. On trying to reinstall I get these errors.

Yeah, do not run
sudo pamac build <package>
it uses polkit and will ask the password when needed.
Neither run
sudo pamac update
for the same reason.

thanks. New to pacman. I’m used to aptitude. This is the first time the GUI tool choked with an error since install a couple years ago.

I’m still curious why the gui interface gives the same error. I would think it negotiates packages as required. In this case I get the errors either way. Time to learn pacman.

The GStreamer 1.18.5 plugins are only available in the Manjaro testing and unstable branches currently. Managing AUR (Arch User Repository) packages is your own responsibility. Since you are not using Arch, you’ll have to hold off on updating AUR packages until the Manjaro stable branch catches up or switch branches.

Warning: Never use sudo with pamac. It will ask for escalated rights if it needs them

No need for that. Update repo packages and ignore AUR package updates for now:

pamac update --no-aur

See pamac update --help
