Enabled “Pamac Update Indicator”? (Gnome-Shell-extension)

I can’t find an extension by that name, but there is an Arch Linux Updates Indicator.
Should I use that?

The Pamac Updates Indicator extension is part of pamac-gtk, but not pamac-gtk3.

I recommend using AppIndicator and KstatusNotifierItem Support (gnome-shell-extension-appindicator) instead.,

Will I get notifications of updates, even though there is no pamac indicator?

YES it´s an alternative I like better than PUI.
And last resort is using pamac (the graphic program) manualy.
But the PUI is included in pamac-gtk - easy to find?
==> Yochanans advice is o.K. like every time he does so.

I would need to uninstall pamac-gtk3 in order to install pamac-gtk.
So I think I will go for Arch Linux Updates Indicator

Install pamac-gtk and it will prompt to replace pamac-gtk3.

sudo pacman -Syu pamac-gtk

…unless you meant you want to keep pamac-gtk3 installed for some reason?

It thought it probably is newer and better package So you say that pamac-gtk is as good?

EDIT: Okay, now I see it is the other way around. pamac-gtk3 is the older and obsolete package.
