:: installing nvidia-utils (520.56.06-2) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils=515.65.01' required by linux518-nvidia -> error installing repo packages

Guys I just stumbled on this trying to update today. What should I do?

You’ll need to remove the 5.18 kernel. I ran into the same issue and that’s all I did and the update completely after that.

I have the same issue, but removing 5.18 did not resolve it

Did you do the update afterwards? did you post your inxi -F? Even if the same issue as above did you explain what is happening? You should do these things.

I’m sorry, not too familiar with how things work around here :sweat_smile:
here is what happens when I tried pacman -Syyu

Make sure you have a LTS kernel installed and you should be good. I recommend 5.15 or 5.10 (not the RT kernels). Check which one are installed:

mhwd-kernel -li

Remove these RT kernels if you don’t know why you installed them (these are RT modified kernels for specific usage), then do the update.

sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux515-rt
sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux519-rt
sudo pacman -Syyu

After restoring a backup due to a bad boot, I was able to go back to 5.15 LTS and remove RT kernels. After that I was able to successfully make the nvidia update. Thank you for the help!

That really doesn’t resolve the actual issue, cause right now you should be ob the 6.0 kernel and the nVidia 520 driver update should not of had any issue with kernel 5.19. If you’re going to have multiple kernels in my book LTS, 5.19, and the current 6.0?. When you do you inxi -F use ~~~ above and below it so it’s formatted like below. I suggest you fix your above post as well.

He probably had issues because he probably didn’t install kernels and video drivers the proper way, I guess. Anyway he fixed his issue so your post is like hitting the wind, no purpose (maybe I’m wrong and the user will come back and reply, but I doubt it, usual forum thing).

Also maybe the RT packages have an issue and it doesn’t resolve the replacement properly (yes it was not the normal kernels, it was the RT he was having issues with, not the normal). I’m too lazy to check.

Corrected Format. Thank you for letting me know :sweat_smile: Probably gonna stay away from multiple kernels at least until I’m more comfortable with how Linux works

Me being new to Linux in general, I just assumed that using the GUI kernel/pacman windows would be the recommended option.

It is indeed (depending on which GUI you’re talking about), all is in the Manjaro WIKI for proper procedures :wink:

For the kernel, just use the LTS (non RT) kernels, they get support for multiple years so you’re less likely to use a dropped/ended kernel (which will then result in issue in the case of Nvidia drivers, as they will not exist for the non existent kernel installed on the machine, leading to issues during update process).

Just keep an eye on the announcement threads, there is always the list of supported kernels, and the announce of End Of Life (EOL) kernel that will be dropped soon (so these EOL kernels you remove before they get dropped for good in Manjaro).
