Because of the 2023-03-01 stable update’s grub issue, I have put grub in the package ignore list, following a workaround mentioned by philm, but with this update I’m getting the following error:
Failed to commit transaction
- update-grub: /usr/bin/update-grub already exists in filesystem (owned by grub)
I assume grub being in the ignore list and this error are related.
Should I get grub out of the package ignore list and risk the update?
Either that or ignore
update-grub package as well (which might get problematic if it’s not installed yet as it’s a dependency for
Thanks @freggel.doe. Yes,
update-grub is not installed yet, so I’ll have to risk the update. I’ll try doing so in a few days, after I’ve backed up my data.
Technically you can also try to upgrade (with continued ignoring
grub) and just pretend
update-grub to be installed:
# pacman -Syu --assume-installed update-grub
Just remember: ignoring packages comes with risk of breakage and is unsupported.
Given the downsides of ignoring packages, I just applied philm’s workaround and unignored grub before updating, which fixed the issue without reactivating the previous LUKS encrypted install issue. Thanks @freggel.doe!
