ChatGPT recommended me using sudo pacman -Syu --ignore kpeoplevcard,kpeople,kcontacts
but it didnt work.

This was asked 100x already. Ask chatgpt how to search a forum. It’s also mentioned in last few stable announcements.


Sorry but i already searched but didnt found it. Can you still help me? Idk what Announcements ur talking about iam new to Manjaro (used Debian/based and a bit Fedora.

Read second post and you’ll find it.

I also wonder how did you search for it? How hard is it to take a line of an error message and paste it into google or wherever.

kpeoplevcard update requires manual intervention

A “newer” version of kpeoplevcard accidently existed, so to install the current version, either update with sudo pacman -Syu kpeoplevcard or sudo pacman -Syuu.

Thx, i know ChatGPT isn’t a reliable source but sometimes it helps. I see it as little buddy who can teach me the other side of Linux (debian, ubuntu mint are easy and most used distros even my parents could use them i they knew english) / explain some weird formulated stuff but i don’t run commands that doesn’t seem helpful, i mean a --ignore flag doesn’t really break the system. I’m a Developer and some Random can’t replace me, if u know at least 50% of what ur doing u can use the Code Snippets, implement them and Debug it fast. Manjaro needs some more efford than debian, but its not that hard like arch. i tried installing it twice manually, it worked well and after 3 days i got a very complex problem i cant solve without profesional help. I plan to use manjaro at least for 1 year, get expierence before i go to a thing like arch linux.

ChatGPT may get something right or may serve a complete ***** like in the above case. Using ignore like that will lead to partial upgrade wich is unsupported.
