• Unable to update, failed to prepare transaction error


    Hi,

    I’m unable to update my system, I got a notification of 4 updates, so I ran pacman -Syyu but I got the following error -

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -Syyu

    Hello
    Sudo pacman running again -Syyu

  • @judd Hi, I ran pacman -Syyu quite a few times earlier but didn’t help, however some more updates just came in, and it all worked fine now, system fully updated!

    Thanks 🙂

  • Pastebin :

    pacman -Qi perl

    There is a line: Needed , under optional… mayby a aur package between?
    mayby some notice it…

    Although I think this issue has been fixed because all the updates came through after I got more updates, and perl has been updated to 5.24

  • Ah ok then is the repository the issue, gor also perl packages but didnt notice it, but yeah mirrors can be slacky i gues 🙂
