Raspberry Pi4 update error: failed to prepare transaction, target not found: util-linux-libs

Hi, I have raspberry pi 4 and trying update but I am prompted with message…

to remove: libutil-linux 2.36-2 (conflicts with util-linux-libs)
to install: util-linux-libs 2.36-4 (replaces libutil-linux) official repositories

when I click “Apply”

dialog box says…

“failed to prepare transaction, target not found: util-linux-libs”

I have tried to find solution using google but no hits, any idea what is wrong?

I could uninstall package “libutil-linux” manually but I can’t find “util-linux-libs” in the repositories, to replace it

any help would be appreciated

Sounds like your mirror has not finished syncing yet.

Wait an hour or so and try again. :slight_smile:

Thanks for quick reply, I will try again in morning :+1:

panic over, system now up-to-date. Thanks again

I was thinking that if I was faced with this problem again, would it be ok to run this command to fix it?

$ sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack && sudo pacman -Syyu

Is there any downside in doing this? I read that you must always do an update when you refresh/sync.

I’m trying to learn a bit more about Manjaro. any advice would be appreciated.

That command is the one you would need to run if you have an issue with the mirrors. :slight_smile:

Thanks again for your help @Strit ri :+1:
