Manjaro-no kernel update possible

I’m running the kernel is 5.14. I tried to update the kernel
(at Strit’s recommendation):
sudo pacman -Syu

(387/387) checking for file conflicts [################...###################] 100%
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python-zipp: /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pycache/zipp.cpython-39.pyc exists in filesystem
python-zipp: /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/zipp.py exists in filesystem

No update done.
How to proceed in order to get the system updated and running well?

You did sudo pip ... didnt you ?

The quick and dirty way to proceed is just to delete those two files (since new ones are going to be downloaded and installed anyway) then proceed with your update. (Make backups of them before you proceed if you want to be extra safe, but I’m relatively sure deleting those two files shouldn’t interfere with the update).

Not sure… I do believe to have used the utility “Add/Remove Software” to update Python.
