Octopi not respecting IgnorePkg in pacman.conf

Octopi Notifier has a red icon indicating there is an update available and Octopi shows-

There is one outdated package on your system:

Name Outdated version Available version
proj 6.3.2-1 8.0.0-3

even though my pacman.conf starts as follows: (note line- IgnorePkg = proj)

# /etc/pacman.conf
# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

# The following paths are commented out with their default values listed.
# If you wish to use different paths, uncomment and update the paths.
#RootDir     = /
#DBPath      = /var/lib/pacman/
#CacheDir    = /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
#LogFile     = /var/log/pacman.log
#GPGDir      = /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/
#HookDir     = /etc/pacman.d/hooks/
HoldPkg      = pacman glibc manjaro-system
# If upgrades are available for these packages they will be asked for first
SyncFirst    = manjaro-system archlinux-keyring manjaro-keyring
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -L -C - -f -o %o %u
#XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u
#CleanMethod = KeepInstalled
#UseDelta    = 0.7
Architecture = auto

IgnorePkg   = proj
#IgnoreGroup =

#NoUpgrade   =
#NoExtract   = 

I have tried restarting the system.
Does anyone have any ideas to fix this or is it a bug?

I don’t think Octopi Notifier cares about settings in /etc/pacman.conf. If you update your system, of course it will be considered. So, best ignore this notification.

Is there any way I can get Octopi & Octopi-Notifier to ignore a package?

It doesn’t show ignored updates in tray already.

so has this changed as I’m getting a red icon and message saying I have an update for an ignored package?

Found today that if I change Octopi Tools->Options->Backend from ALPM + pacman to just pacman the problem disappears!
I have created an issue on github about this but in the mean time I’ll just use pacman as the backend.
