You can see here which is the latest available version (flatpacks, snaps, aur, appimage excluded). https://packages.manjaro.org/?query=darktable
Note that there a different “stability levels”, by default you are in stable, as a new user i do not recommend moving to smth else. Currently does not matter, since in the 3 repositories the version is the same.
The next thing will be to be sure that your mirror is updated. Just type in a terminal
You should see a green ok on the first line. If not you can select other mirrors (the fastest/nearest to you)
pacman-mirrors -f 5
Than try to update normally, for example with add remove programs aka pamac. If not you can force refresh of cache etc. But my guess on a new install are mirrors not refreshed. If not you can force the things a little with
sudo pacman -Syyu
But close the add remove programs first and do not do this on a regular basis.
As a last resort if the update with sudo pacman is good, but the GUI pamac is still showing something inadequate we can force it too to refresh
Hello, I’ve just install Manjaro on a phisical PC and It works. Repositories are updated and I can download from extra the recent darktable version.
MY first test has been done with a virtual machine; maybe due to a wrong network configuration pamac was not able to update, but I’m not sure.
Sorry form my mistake.
