($ pamac build) wants to reinstall bunch of packages

Hello Community. Recently I noticed something unusual in the installation of AUR packages in the Newest Pamac (Both CLI and GUI)

I want to install any package (ej: ungoogled-chromium) and pamac wants to redownload and reinstall bunch of my packages installed on my system, mostly core packages.

Pamac shows something like this (I cutted for avoid large reading)

This happens with latest Pamac 10.0.1-1.0.
My workaround is just install aur packages using Yay.

I hope this helps in some way.

Hi and welcome to the forum :+1:

If i’m not mistaken:

AUR packages build inside a temporary container, thats why it needs to install all of those for it’s build-dependencies, the final result will be “installed” into your system.
That doesn’t mean it will install all those packages with it.
To check what it does look at the PKGBUILD.

Yes. I Know AUR packages needs some packages for compiling and the building process is in the PKGBUILD, but now Pamac wants to reinstall core packages installed from my system, like the pacman itself, sudo and linux headers. I think is an error. Is redownloading 400MB-1GB unnecessarily.

Does that happen with ALL AUR packages or just the one you mentioned?
If it’s just the one you mentioned i would contact the maintainer… :woman_shrugging:

Is happening with every package, Even is a binary or git.

Ok then i’ll crosslink to Pamac 10 is now released, so it will be linked in that thread.
I would advice you to create a bug report at:

I see with version 10.0.2-1 the problem is gone. now I can use pamac normally.
