Just installed Sway and found packages missing

After a fresh install from ISO running yay -Su gives:

:: Searching AUR for updates...
:: Searching databases for updates...
 -> Packages not in AUR: gtk3-nocsd  manjaro-sway-settings  manjaro-sway-wallpapers  oh-my-zsh  rofi-wayland  wlay  zeit
 -> Orphan (unmaintained) AUR Packages: flashfocus
:: 1 Packages to upgrade/install.
1  aur/wlsunset  0.2.0-3 -> 0.3.0-1
==> Packages to exclude: (eg: "1 2 3", "1-3", "^4" or repo name)
 -> Excluding packages may cause partial upgrades and break systems

What is it with those packages? Do they not exist anywhere? Have they moved?

Also wlsunset failed to upgrade because some it coudn’t find wayland-client on my system and neither could I find it on the internet, only references to Ubuntu.

Can you help me with any of these?
Thank you!

1 - Dont use an AUR helper for system upgrades.

2 - Always sync when upgrading and vice versa.

On to the thing itself … sway is a community edition.
And its true those packages do not appear to be present in the repos or the AUR.
Its extra odd considering it seems the ISO was built recently.

Yes, I managed to fix it by running sudo sh -c "curl -s https://pkg.manjaro-sway.download/$(pacman-mirrors -G)/ > /etc/pacman.d/manjaro-sway.repo.conf" apparently when I ran mirrors update from pamac it overwrote that configuration, or maybe it was never there, I cannot possibly know now.

But after that it is fixed.

Thank you nevertheless.

It seems you’re missing the manjaro-sway repo. See https://pkg.manjaro-sway.download/

EDIT: It seems you already figured it out.
