Pamac Segmentation Fault

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

Does it also happen when running it with bash?
bash pamac-manager

Yes. Its the exact same issue with bash too.

What’s the output of:

pacman --sync --refresh --upgrade
pamac upgrade


❯ pacman --sync --refresh --upgrade
pamac upgrade
