Problems updating system and Installing apps on Pacman

I Installed Manjaro Linux MATE yesterday, and when i want to update the system or install software on Pamac (preinstalled GUI Package Manager), I obtain this error:

[felipe@suma1025 ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing pacman (6.0.2-18) breaks dependency 'pacman-contrib' required by alpm-octopi-utils

I obtain this when I want to install an application on Pamac too.

When I want to install pacman-contrib I obtain this:

[felipe@suma1025 ~]$ sudo pacman -Sy pacman-contrib
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date

looking for conflicting packages...
:: pacman-contrib and pacman are in conflict. Remove pacman? [y/N] n
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: pacman-contrib and pacman are in conflict

I’m new on Arch Distros and I don’t understad why I’m obtaining this problem.

Do not use -Sy to install a package, either use -S or -Syu.
This case needs -Syu because you also want to upgrade other packages at the same time (at least pacman package itself for obvious reasons).
