Helping replace packages when update

Many times during the update(sudo pacman -Syu), messages are displayed replacing the pack with the extra repo pack. Basically, I Write y to all these alternative messages.
My general question is that this replacement y doesn’t cause any problem, but of course, I pressed n some times and the system was not successful updated
Do these updates replace packages have to be typed Y and there is no problem in the OS process?

You will only see this in pacman. In fact when you run pamac update what is equal to sudo pacman -Syu you will not see it, since it confirms the replacements anyway.

On some occasions, packages are renamed, split or moved to a different repository. You do need to accept those to stay up-to-date.
