Libmagic6 repeat upgrades

libmagic6 keeps updating, repeatedly, unending.

pamac is not detecting that the package has been updated, and so keeps updating it, …

Any suggestions/help?


Look at the log on AUR page. Was modified a couple of times and Last Updated: 2021-08-05 18:33 so is not from the package itself right now, but do you need it?

Even if you update or reinstall it from terminal?
@Yochanan - something particular with this package?

Nope, Sounds like a corrupt build cache.

Remove the package’s build cache then try again. By default, it should be /var/tmp/pamac-build-<your-username>/imagemagick6/.
