ry

No such issue here.
Are you fully up-to-date?

@maycne.sonahoz Well actually I have a number of available updates, could that be the issue? I’ll run sudo pacman -Syu and try again, thanks for your time.

Yes it is.
Installing a package always fetches the version in the repository, and is usually built with versions of dependencies also in the repository. If you install a package on an out-of-date system, it may not run because previously installed dependencies are out-of-date.
