Manjaro Hello Versions Conflict

Hello community, for some time now I have been getting this announcement every time installation is executed, and packages are updated within pamac.

I thought I’d report it just in case it needed to be documented or the team might not be aware of it.

Warning: manjaro-hello: installed version (0.7.0-6) is newer than extra (0.7.0-5)

Hi @TheRooJZ,

My version is also 0.7.0-5:

$ pamac info manjaro-hello                                                                                                                                                                                                                           1 ↵

So I’m thinking it’s safe if you wish to downgrade it:

pamac upgrade --enable-downgrade

Or I think:

sudo pacman -Syuu manjaro-hello

Although, if it works and you have no problems, you can safely ignore it and it’ll catch up eventually.

Hope this helps!

Oh I see this is excellent, it works correctly, that’s why I haven’t moved it for a long time. Thank you very much for answering.

This is because at some point, manjaro-hello was upgraded to a higher version, but then this newer version was pulled from the repo again for some reason.

If you want to get rid of the warning message, just issue… :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -Syuu

… in a terminal window. You only need to do this once, and then your manjaro-hello will be on the same version again as the one in the repo. :wink:


Thank you, there were several who also asked about the notice and I was not sure what answer to give.
