Problem with updating Manjaro

I tried to update Manjaro with sudo pacman -Syu and it said :

:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: Replace bashrc-manjaro with core/bash? [Y/n] y 
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing gdb-common (14.1-1) breaks dependency 'gdb-common=13.2' required by gdb-multiarch

Now my first move would be to remove gdb-multiarch since it’s “just” a debugger, but I’m unsure if this would be smart, since I don’t know if other packages depend on it.

My second guess would be to just run sudo pacman -Syuu in order to allow downgrades, but i’m also unsure if this would be effective, since I haven’t read up what it would exactly do.

What am I supposed to do?

It’s an AUR package. You installed it yourself and it’s your responsibility to keep it updated.

Maybe start reading and searching what certain commands do and/or how to find this or that info. Or else you’ll soon find out that arch-based distros aren’t for you.

So, you either have to update gdb-multiarch together with gdb-common or first remove it and reinstall it after.
