I cannot upgrade an AUR package libkipi. I receive the errors below.

Is it required by anything? pacman -Qi libkipi

If not, remove the package.

Resolved with this:

It’s most likely an orphan and can be safely removed. Check with the command I gave above.

I weird because this was happened after this upgrade, and I don’t remember to install myself this package.
I try how much is possible to avoid AUR packages. Using your command seems it is not used by anything…

Ok thanks, but what can I do about it? Uninstall “libkipi”?

Where does that come from? libkipi is neither mentioned the error message you quoted nor in the answer given to you.

Remove the EOL kernel linux516 before upgrading.

libkipi (AUR) can’t be updated. WTF is this, i never installed it.

Der PGP-Schlüssel XXXXXXXXXXXXXX wird benötigt, um libkipi Quellcode-Dateien zu verifizieren.
Vertraue Albert Astals Cid <aacid@kde.org> und importiere den PGP-Schlüssel ?

Is it safe to uninstall it?

It likely is a former (?) dependency of a package which used to be in the main repositories. Following a clean of upstream repositories, the package and its dependencies unused by other other packages have been moved to AUR.
If no installed package depends on it, or if you don’t use AUR packages depending on it, you can safely remove those packages.

@linux-aarhus Could you please create a paragraph about former repository packages in your documentation?
Or make it a Wiki post so i add it myself?

Thanks a lot for the x86 help team !

It is not required by anything on your system from what you have shown. Is it showing up as an orphaned package?

1 Like

thanks for your reply.

Linking my post since original thread has been split.

What happened was:

libkipi was, until recently, a dependency of gwenview and spectacle. Those dependencies are no longer necessary.

Here is the commit that removed libkipi as a dependency of gwenview (notice line #13), and here is the commit that removed it as a dependency of spectacle (line #10).

The package was kept available by moving it to the AUR because it is still required by 2 AUR packages (spectacle-light and kipi-plugins, which require either libkipi or libkipi-git).

It was an orphan, not used by anything. I removed it successfully without affecting my system. Thank you!

Now that i look more closely, the version spotted in manjaro-compare is misleading since the package is there part of the kde-unstable repository, which is not enabled by default.

pacman -Qi libkipi                                                                                                           ✔

should i uninstall it before updating?

As stated already, multiple packages can sometimes become orphans after an update, they are not needed anymore.

You can update with Pacman with no issue. If you have AUR enabled and try to update with something supporting the AUR like Pamac, and this package exists in the AUR, then it will try to update it through the AUR (which is the case here). You can remove your orphans in theory without issue.
