Even you can see pulseaudio-ctl AUR does not even show up as an option when searching… The expected / previous behavior (in my opinion) would be that pamac would suggest updates, when available, but always from the same source. Like pkg → pkg, or aur → aur, but never pkg → aur.
This started after the major update from this week:
So as I understand, pamac displays possible updates, but pacman does not?
The cause of this is that pamac and pacman don’t share the same temporary database.
sudo pacman -Syyu is the same as pamac update --force-refresh
However… I guess the name AUR is here wrong. For example brave is the same name on “Updates” and on “Search”. AUR Packages are called brave-bin, brave-dev-bin and so on. So offically it is not AUR, even if it is marked somehow as AUR.
Hey @Evernow , yes, I do have the “Check for updates from AUR” option toggled on in Pamac settings, but these packages have not even been installed via AUR, so that is the part that does not really make sense to me…
@megavolt , I didn’t know pamac had it’s own database, for sure, that must have been the issue: pamac database got into some weird state! I clicked on the tree dots, then I clicked “Refresh databases”, and that was the trick. Great thanks.
@Bruno_Goncalves , you might be right, there seems to be something wrong about brave pkg. All other packages I had issue with on pamac have been fixed by “Refresh databases”, but today pamac started nagging me to update brave again (and just brave this time), and seems to be wanting to use AUR again (although it has been installed from official repos on my system). I have not updated so far and will wait and see if I can find more information about that specific one, maybe I will try to reinstall it later today.
I do not use the 2 packages mentioned so it is no problem for me
I do not see any problem of inconsistency pamac search for pulseaudio-ctl and python-pulsectl shows the packages are present in community repository and AUR
but Manjaro packages have not yet been updated to the version available in AUR
so pamac is suggesting updating to the AUR packages to get the latest package versions
