• Can't Update System


    You will probably need more information. Ask away. This is what happens on my system. My initial reaction is to reinstall the whole system, but then, wasn’t I promised that I only ever had to install once?

    $ sudo pacman -Syu
    [sudo] password for wayne:

  • I am getting the same error with a different dependency reference. This is since upgrading the day before yesterday.

    It seems that you ll have to do without gnome-settings-daemon-redshift for the time being:angel:

    Thank you. I could see that too. However, when I did a sudo pacman -R gnome-settings-daemon-redshift I was asked if I was sure I wanted to uninstall gnome 3. This seemed like an endless loop of dependencies and since I was in gnome 3 at the time I got frustrated.

    I took the extreme approach, which was remarkably painless and not very time consuming.

    What I did was reinstall Antergos but chose not to reformat /home … that kept all my settings in tact, even my rotating wallpaper for which I am so proud. My system had dozens of unnecessary DE’s like Plasma, KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, ad infinitum, for testing purposes. I was asking for conflicts. Decided to go back to the KISS philosophy and start afresh.
