I’ve noticed a note about package removals/additions in today’s release…
My question is, are there any commands I can use to identify and/or remove packages I have installed that were removed? Or would removed packages automatically be uninstalled during the update?
See System maintenance - ArchWiki
One can also check in Add/Remove Software for orphaned packages under Installed > Orphans.
ah ha, thank you @Yochanan! I think I had a missunderstanding about “Orphans”, in that my initial experience with them was as “extras” installed (like compilers) after installing an AUR package.
Orphans = "extras" + "dropped packages"… perfect! Thank you!
