• error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)


    Hello!
    Since perl have been updated I cant update whole system by “sudo pacman -Syu”.
    It tells me:

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu
    :: Synchronising package databases...

    :: perl-gtk2-unique: installing perl (5.26.0-1) breaks dependency 'perl<5.25'
    

    I can update any other package but only by hand, using pacman to update just it.
    So how can I break dependency of perl versions?

  • Perhaps Shutter is installed? I know that this can cause your problem to occur.

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • @Keegan
    Yes! Thank you!
    That was it!

    All those problem packages was needed only by Shutter.
    Removing solved the problem!

  • Thanks! Glad I could help:slight_smile:.
