Hi! I’m not very experienced with Antergos, only been using it for a couple of months now. So far I’ve enjoyed the experience more than Ubuntu, but each has its upsides. The problem I’m having is this: whenever there are package updates, deselecting them on Pamac’s updates list doesn’t prevent the program from upgrading them anyway.
Case in point, just today there was a minor update to LibreOffice. I figured I could live without the absolute latest point release. It’s big enough that it adds several minutes to the update procedure, and stable enough that I don’t feel like updating it all the time is a big priority. Same thing with Code::Blocks; it was just a -n level update (What are those, anyway? Package config changes? Tweaks to build options?) to a really big app. I made sure that the boxes next to each were blank/white/unmarked before clicking Apply.
Pamac downloaded and updated them both anyway.
I’d just like to know what’s going on. Have I failed to understand the UI paradigm? Is this just a (mis)feature that’s explained somewhere in the docs? Or is this a genuine bug that I should report?
