Hope it can help!
Best regards

i would add mate-panel-gtk3 to the pacman ignore list.

you can look @ mate-panel with pacman -Si mate-panel , if there depency part of that package like gtk2 or gtk3

if you see gtk2 make mate-panel-gtk3 ignore it wanna update with the gtk3 version atleast one package and thats the block…

i try this command and update fixed
1- sudo pacman -Rdd mate-desktop
2-sudo pacman -Rdd mate-panel
3-sudo pacman -Rdd libmateweather
4-sudo pacman -S mate-panel-gtk3
5-sudo pacman -Syyuu
that is make my mate up-to-date :wink:

only by knowing how -Rdd works :slight_smile:

Is this work with you and update running?

The question is only which package depends on mate-panel-gtk3 as you have now a mixed setup of MATE.

Ok, seems you guys have mate-menu installed, which is now only gtk3 supported. To have the update smooth, please remove mate-menu first with sudo pacman -R mate-menu.

OK, here is what I did – 1) removed mate-menu; 2) ran the update; 3) rebooted; 4) tried to reinstall mate-menu, but it failed. Is there a way to easily get this to work?
