Pamac version problem

Hi. I have a laptop with Manjaro KDE and Windows 10 dual booted. And I also have a Manjaro KDE VM (qemu) running inside Manjaro . To my surprise I found that the pamac on the system install was version 10.1.2 but on the VM it is 10.0.6-2. I tried updating both systems, but they are up-to-date. Could you please tell what is going on. (I love the old interface btw)

Maybe the VM’s mirror is out of date?

Try sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu within the VM.

I did sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack && sudo pacman -Syyu this morning. :confused:

Ah okay.

Well, seems Pamac version was reversed in stable branch recently. So your desktop got it when it was there, but your update on the VM was “too late” to get it.


Can I revert by desktop pamac version? I prefer the the older pamac :sweat_smile:

If you are on stable branch, you can do sudo pacman -Syuu and it should downgrade it.

Thanks a lot, sir. :blush:

If you still have the previous version in /var/cache/pacman/pkg, then you could run… :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -U --ignore --needed /var/cache/pacman/pkg/name-of-the-package

Thank you so much. It solved the problem.
