Using the “update tab” on pamac leads to the % of refreshing the packages from the mirrorlist. But rather than showing updates available after hitting the 100% mark, it crashes without any GUI error logs.
If I try running pamac-manager from the terminal and try the update again, it leads to the following stack trace: zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) pamac-manager
❯ pacman --sync --refresh --upgrade
error: only one operation may be used at a time
