I just tried to install the update, before I mess up my system, I’m asking how to best resolve this dependency conflict:
sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
multilib is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing nvidia-utils (510.68.02-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils=510.60.02' required by linux516-nvidia
I’m currently on the “Testing Update 2022-04-25” using GNOME.
I did what you recommended on two different PCs. But it still doesn’t work. Any guidance on how can I help to debug this? I would love to. I’m checking now their repository (gnome-control-center). Ah, I tried to use different kernels: 5.15.36-1, 5.16.20-2, 5.17.5-2, even the experimental 5.18rc4.

Since previous update, kipi-plugins, libkipi and libmediawiki were orphaned, and then relegated to AUR packages. I removed them. But now, if on an image I try to share->imgur from Dolphin or export->imgur from Spectacle, it crashes, and doesn’t send images to imgur website like it would before. What is weird is that the options to send to external services are still there, despite the kipi plugin and dependencies being removed. Something is not right.
I finally found a solution that worked for my case. For some reason I didn’t have the package installed gvfs-google and pamac install gvfs-google did the trick. I checked the presence of gvfs-goa also and that was there. The weird fact is I had this same problem in 3 different machines.
Always check optional dependencies depending on your needs. With gvfs, there are quite a few. Not everyone needs all of them.
Optional Deps : gvfs-afc: AFC (mobile devices) support
gvfs-smb: SMB/CIFS (Windows client) support
gvfs-gphoto2: gphoto2 (PTP camera/MTP media player) support
gvfs-mtp: MTP device support
gvfs-goa: gnome-online-accounts (e.g. OwnCloud) support
gvfs-nfs: NFS support
gvfs-google: Google Drive support
gtk3: Recent files support
Currently we include all of them on the GNOME ISO due to user feedback:
Because it was installed as a dependency and the package depending on it is no longer installled (or there didn’t exist any such package in the first place).
linux518 (or any kernel for that matter) doesn’t list nvidia drivers as a dependency but it is required by linux518-nvidia:
$ pacman -Sii linux518
Depends On : coreutils linux-firmware kmod mkinitcpio>=27
Optional Deps : wireless-regdb: to set the correct wireless channels of your country
