One weird thing failed to load on the boot

So, sometimes I check is there a problem in the system, and now I found that:

Hi @lightsweet,

To be totally honest I don’t think that is a problem, as such. I don’t think it’s something that runs permanently. I suspect it’s just for getting a list of package changes for your installed packages.

Mine also says loaded, like yours, and like yours it also shows inactive.

$ systemctl status pkgfile-update.service
● pkgfile-update.service - pkgfile database update
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/pkgfile-update.service; static)
Active: inactive (dead)

Feb 26 09:45:48 Mirdarthos-PC systemd[1]: Starting pkgfile database update...
Feb 26 09:45:55 Mirdarthos-PC systemd[1]: pkgfile-update.service: Succeeded.
Feb 26 09:45:55 Mirdarthos-PC systemd[1]: Finished pkgfile database update.

And I don’t think it can, or in fact should, be removed. So, the sudo pacman -Rns pkgfile doesn’t work, and I don’t think that’s an error. Also, I think the name pkgfile is incorrect, I suspect it’s pkgfile-update.

Also, please, if you post again in the futuree, please don’t post screenshots. Rather copy the text from the terminal and paste it in the post, wrapped in triple backticks (```) to format it for legibility.

Hope this helps!
