Neovim version 5 not showing up in pacman -S neovim

Hello everyone :wave:

I believe Neovim version 0.5 is released, but I do not get that version when I try sudo pacman -S neovim even though I updated the package list with sudo pacman -Syy

What am I missing?

You must be on stable branch. It is in unstable and testing - so the next stable update should bring it to you, see Manjaro - Branch Compare.

Please don’t do that as it could lead to problems (partial updates) when installing packages later via pacman -S ...
Always initiate the update as well:

$ sudo pacman -Syu

If you just want to check for updates:

$ checkupdates

doesn’t interfere and only checks for and lists the available updates.


Thank you @freggel.doe. I shall use pacman -Syu going forward.

How long does it typically take for a package to move to stable?

The stable updates are accompanied by announcements, which are posted in #announcements:stable-updates . The frequency of updates varies sometimes (at the moment we are seeing one of the longest stretches), it’s usually every 2 weeks give or take a few days.

The latest was two days ago or depending on time zone.
