Problems updating imagemagick, file "exists in both 'imagemagick' and 'libmagick'"

I am currently on 18.0..... and admittedly I have not updated in a while... but today I am trying to get my system current and I am running into the following errors:

------------[ start
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/etc/ImageMagick-7/colors.xml exists in both 'imagemagick' and 'libmagick'

...
------------[ stop

I am not sure on how to correct these to get the update to complete (using pacman -Syu)

Any help would be appreciated...
thanks!

Essentially, remove imagemagick, update, reinstall imagemagick.

sudo pacman -Rdd imagemagick
sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S imagemagick
