For months now Pamac has been malfunctioning. When I try to remove a package, I get an error ‘target not found: packagename.’ When I try to update, it will search for updates but tell me that everything is up to date. For awhile, I thought Manjaro was just having a long time in between updates when in reality Pamac just wasn’t displaying updates properly.
Here is a video recording of the misbehavior I am experiencing. I had to restart in the process which is why there’s 2 videos. The 2nd video is just confirming that the problem is not fixed.
Is the problem also there with other packages except redshift? Also, is the problem also with updates with pacman?
Honestly, you shouldn’t have to make videos about these. But even after you did, I was in a lack of information. See this :–
The problem exists with any package I try to uninstall via pamac, I just used redshift as an example because it’s small and in the main repository. If the problem was just with redshift, I would have said it was only a problem with redshift.
The problem with updating is that pamac will tell me there are no updates when in reality there are. In order to get these updates, I need to install a package I do not already have installed to trigger the proper update process. I don’t know if this even works properly, as re-installing redshift triggered a bunch of other package updates, which it triggers everytime. However the package list is significantly smaller than it had been in the past when I believe pamac is actually doing an update.
