• Pacman not working

    So today I updated approximately 153 packages using yaourt -Syua; this included, among other things, an update of my DE (GNOME) as well as the newest version of pacman, version Now, though, neither will work. If I try and run pacman -Syu, everything goes fine for a moment, the databases refresh…and immediately after it throws an error: “Segmentation fault”.

I have pending updates that I can now not install. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    remove the lock file from /var/lib/pacman/db.lck

    sudo pacman -Syyu
  • @judd I tried that, actually. That’s why I am confused. When I remove it and then run it again I still get the segmentation fault.

    segmentation fault.

    Can you put the segmentation error that throws the console here?
