• pacman -Syu - many 'files exist in filesystem' from NetworkManager


    Hello community,

    I am having some errors ‘files exist in filesystem’ from networkmanager when running

    pacman -Syu
    

    The Log of pacman -Syu is here: https://ptpb.pw/PBdk

    What can I do?

    Is it possible to:

    1. use pacman -R networkmanager and pacman -S networkmanager or should I
    2. remove every conflicting file with rm -rf <file> and then pacman -S networkmanager or
    3. do pacman -Rc networkmanager and then pacman -S networkmanager

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello,
    this kind of a problem usually comes when you haven’t updated your system for a long time. A rolling release requires relatively frequent system updating. You can avoid such problems by updating e.g. once a week or more often. Updating is recommended to be done at the very least every month, but even that may be too seldom.

    Anyway, you could try

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    

    since that updates repo infos first, and possibly downgrades some packages (if needed).
    Also, one possibility could be simply

    sudo pacman -S networkmanager
    

    to reinstall it.
    I’m not sure if either one really helps, but these are what I would try first.

    If they don’t help, you could try what you yourself suggested. But take care you have a network working, since if you don’t have networkmanager running, maybe your network will be down and you need to use some other networking system.

  • Another option is
    sudo pacman -S networkmanager --force

  • @BlaiseD --force is decapriated…

  • never do -Rc btw, just show the files conflicting, normaly file exist is always better to remove but for networkmanager i dont know… pacman -R should also not work, pacman -S --overwrite xx mayby but dont remove your package if a mistake you can always reinstall back…

    It’s the first thing I do every day after login, but since 23.10.2018 I get this error ;-).

    Anyway, you could try

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    

    Output is here: https://ptpb.pw/Vd1B

    Also, one possibility could be simply

    sudo pacman -S networkmanager
    

    Output is here: https://ptpb.pw/U3rX

    After doing a diff with meld both commands are ending with the same error.

    pacman -R networkmanager is not working because network-manager-applet: removing networkmanager breaks dependency 'networkmanager'

    How do I use the --overwrite flag? pacman -S networkmanager --overwrite don’t work (error: no targets specified[...]) and if I use it with every file, so I can also do it with rm -rf.

    After reading the wiki page about “Failed to commit transaction (conflicting_files)” on archlinux.org I have done pacman -Qo networkmanager and it says:

    [[email protected] ~]# pacman -Qo networkmanager
    error: No package owns networkmanager
    

    Greets, @duuuark

  • it is mostly :

    pacman -Qo /usr/share/dbus-1/interfaces/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Device.Macvlan.xml
    

    force was easier but will see how to overwrite, now trying a sort of overwrite but let know…

    but is obvious its networkmanager

  • i think would be around

    sudo pacman -Suy networkmanager --overwrite glob
    

    as https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/pacman#"Failed_to_commit_transaction_(conflicting_files)"_error

  • @duuuark
    So simple updating is not possible.

    I’d backup all important data first, just to be safe.

    Then remove the conflicting networkmanager files manually (rm -f) and then reinstall networkmanager with

    sudo pacman -S networkmanager
    

    Note that with pamac you can easily look at the files of the package networkmanager. May be useful to see and compare them with the problematic files. Then maybe you could remove only the files that are no more in the new version…

  • Hello @manuel,

    @manuel said in pacman -Syu - many 'files exist in filesystem' from NetworkManager:

    I’ve done a backup of /usr/{bin,lib,share}, thanks.

    I can’t delete any of this files, because none of them are deleted in the new version and only 29 (of 285) files are changed.

    you are right. It is the successful command, but you must set up glob with the right pattern. After two tests I had the right combination, see the terminal outputs on https://ptpb.pw/sHdc. In my case it was pacman -S networkmanager --overwrite *NetworkManager*,/usr/*nm*. Maybe is there a better wildcard combination, for me it has worked.

    Thanks to all for your support.
