• Request help with: hunspell-en dependency problem

    I’m relatively new to Antergos and after doing a yaourt update today I have been receiving hunspell-en dependency errors.

    I can’t figure out how to fit it, I’ve looked up the issue on google and here without any success.

    From checking yaourt, neither hunspell-en or hunspell-en_GB is installed, but when I try doing a yaourt update I receive the below dependency error.

    /[[email protected] ~]$ yaourt -Syu --devel --aur

    Any ideas or suggestions about what to do would be appreciated. I figure it might be a cache based issue that I need to update, rebuild or refresh.

  • See here for the solution.

  • @richramo , This isn’t the first time that this type of problem has occurred. I was unable to update normally yesterday myself. It’s no real sweat. ;-)

    The answer is to un-click said Hunspell-en packages in Pamac’s GUI, itself, and/or better still: put them on the Ignore List until a solution is pushed through by the developers. In general they’re very quick to react from my experience. :-)

  • Thanks heaps, that seem to fix the issue, was originally worried that uninstalling antergos-common-meta it would uninstall some important desktop packages but it seems to have done the trick without breaking anything.

    I think I just need to get use to small glitches like this and trust that they will be fixed.

    Thanks @Bryanpwo and @frenchconnection
