Your profile says you are on stable branch, but pacman 6.1.0-3 is… well actually, it doesn’t exist anywhere in Manjaro repos. This is version from Arch.

So remove unsupported repos you added in your pacman.conf.


Hi @hadian and welcome to the Manjaro community.

A little housekeeping…

As a new user, please take some time to familiarise yourself with Forum requirements; in particular, the many ways to use the forum to your benefit. To that end, some or all these links will be invaluable:

And last, but not least, the Stable Update Announcements, which you should check frequently for important update related information. Occasionally an issue might be directly related to a particular update; it’s always best to check those announcements.


i did not change anything in pacman.conf, but i added in mirror list the server from my country.
after removing that server, the problem solved!

Yes, same if you add arch server.

Or if you add a rotten mirror with issues, or not synced.
