• \[SOLVED\] dependency cycle detected while updating


    Hi,
    I have not updated my system for quite some time. Today I tried to update, I get dependency cycle detected error.

    sudo pacman -Syyu 
    

    I get following output

  • I have uninstalled chmsee. Now it started update. But I need chmsee as well.

  • chmsee is no longer maintained and it does not run with xulrunner version 28. So I can not use chmsee with xulrunner version 28

  • Hi,

    Glad to see you solved it. I highly recommend you install system updates AT LEAST once per week if not more often. Remember we are using a rolling release model so there are updates almost daily.

    Best Regards,
    Dustin

  • I am very much happy with Antergos and it’s my main distro. I use it for almost 99% of work. From today I started clicking distrowatch page.
