Hello - sorry if this has been answered, I’ve looked around and couldn’t find anything.
Since the last stable update - the pamac system tray widget is missing entirely. It’s not even in the System Tray Settings dialog as an option to enable. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling pamac-tray-icon-plasma with no effect.
Grateful for any insight!
UPDATE: after several relogs and restarts, it has oddly re-appeared on its own. I still don’t know why this happened.
Doesn’t appear “Updates” in system tray settings?
Have you tried activating “Always show all entries”?

I am experiencing the same issue after the update. It doesn’t even show as an entry in System Tray Settings (see below)

Same for me. I tried to reinstall pamac-tray-icon-plasma and did the relog several times, nothing helped
@maycne.sonahoz says in this post about stopping Update Manager:

It’s less about being hidden and more about only providing a tray icon, which is only shown when relevant, e.g. when they notify the user. You can also configure them to always show in the tray.
Beware: it’s not because clicking on them opens a GUI application that the latter is actually in the background. Those two tray icons are actually not part of the GUI application opening, they “merely” laun…
Can you test if email@example.com and app-pamac\x2dtray\firstname.lastname@example.org are both in “loaded active plugged” status? An easy way to do it:
systemctl list-units --user | grep pamac
systemctl list-units --user | grep kde_notifier
