Miraclecast dependency failure: git-core


#1

Hi, unfortunately I get the following error (KDE Plasma, 4.16.0 kernel):

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: miraclecast: installing git (2.17.0-1) breaks dependency 'git-core'

I haven’t installed miraclecast, though.

¯_(ツ)_/¯

OK. It seems I have installed miraclecast before, although it’s not in the repositories anymore, only miraclecast-git. I removed miraclecast and the update went fine. Sorry for bothering! :slight_smile:

Same here. The problem was that miraclecast depends on “git-core” and there was an update for “git” from extra.

That package doesn’t exist; please report the issue to the AUR package maintainer if it hasn’t been done already.
