AUR is not supported, but if you want to use it you should be on unstable branch and be prepared things can break.
As for the pulseaudio error, I would install manjaro-pipewire and forget about pulseaudio as it is legacy.
If it complains about pulseaudio things being dependent, remove those and then retry to install pipewire.
This is very broad for understanding what to do. (manage, unsupported) But thank you.
After doing “sudo pacman -S manjaro-pipewire” and confirming removal of numerous pulseaudio packages, audio continued playing and “pamac upgrade/upgrade” and “pacman -Syyu” worked without issues. After rebooting, sound is playing and pamac update/upgrade works.
Btw. there are still installed pavucontrol, pipewire-alsa/pulse, pulseaudio-ctl, xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin (when i have searched for “pulseaudio”).
So the issue seems to be solved for me by installing manjaro-pipewire as suggested by bedna. Thank you.
