Unable to update older manjaro system

I’m trying to update older system, which does not work:

sudo pacman -Suuyy

remove the linux517 kernel, its end of life;
and then remove the wxgtk2:
pamac remove wxgtk2
run update again

  1. Don’t use -Syyuu. Use…
    ° -Syu for normal updating
    ° -Syyu after having refreshed your mirror list with pacman-mirrors
    ° -Syuu if you need to roll back a package to a previous version

See the man page… :arrow_down:

man pacman
  1. Manjaro is a curated rolling-release distribution and is by design meant to be kept up-to-date. If you can’t keep your system updated for whatever reason — e.g. data caps at your internet provider — then you’re probably better off going with a point-release distribution than with a rolling-release distro.

Thanks. I had to reboot with older kernel 5.10.112-1-MANJARO because linux517-5.17.4-1 was in use.

pamac remove wxgtk2
sudo pacman -R linux517 linux517-nvidia linux517-zfs linux517-headers linux517-virtualbox-host-modules

Later on I can upgrade with sudo pacman -Suy.
