Hey out there,
on my way to fix my wifi issues I came accross an output of pacman that reports I have missing files. I am wondering if this is concerning or to be expected? And if it is concerning how would I repair these packages? I tried to reinstall one of the packages mentioned below, but it does not seem like it would bring back the missing files.
> pacman -Qk 2>/dev/null | grep -v ' 0 missing files'
audit: 208 total files, 4 missing files
bind: 339 total files, 3 missing files
fwupd: 2888 total files, 1 missing file
manjaro-firmware: 260 total files, 133 missing files
manjaro-hotfixes: 7 total files, 1 missing file
manjaro-zsh-config: 91 total files, 1 missing file
nfs-utils: 124 total files, 3 missing files
packagekit: 288 total files, 1 missing file
polkit: 217 total files, 1 missing file
systemd: 1330 total files, 1 missing file
Sure, it’s not in the repos nor in the AUR. That means it’s not supported or even maintained in any way.
Keeping a copy of it in/from your package cache might suffice (default location is /var/cache/pacman/pkg).
You could reinstall it again if you deem it necessary although unmaintained old packages should always be removed in my opinion.
