• Arch suggests pacman upgrade


    Allan McRae (Arch Linux) suggests to upgrade pacman to the latest pacman-5.0.1 version before the 2016-04-23.

    The package is already at a latest build in Antergos, if the distro is upgraded regularly:

    $ pacman -Qii pacman
    Name            : pacman

    De nada.

    Sincerelly yours

    Edit

    All thanks go only to @lots.0.logs and @karasu, Antergos developers and maintainers. And of course to Arch Linux. We’re only trying to help them somehow.

    Apart from not neglecting this (especially for a rolling release distro), if getting informed from the Arch News is an extra burden, a good practice is to subscribe to the arch-announce mailing list to keep up…
