Failure to Update

I am getting this message during my current update:
“dbus-nosystemd and dbus-x11 are in conflict”
Can somebody explain what is going on … please.

A search of the forums brings the solution. Search is your friend, use it.


Not really, for lack of information this is largely speculation, but:
at some point, you installed an AUR package that required dbus-nosystemd, for some reason
Since your system, very obviously, does use systemd, having this doesn’t make much sense - but it has worked so far, apparently.
dbus-x11 is also an AUR package

Use the repo package, which is simply called dbus.
You don’t need either dbus-nosystemd or dbus-x11.
