• Errors Halted Update


    When attempting my first Antergos KDE update, I received the following error message:

    Pepper-flash: local (1:26.0.0.137-1) is newer than extra (27.0.0.183-1)
    dependency cycle detected:
    harfbuzz will be installed before its freetype2 dependency
    dependency cycle detected:
    xorg-server will be installed before its nvidia-340xx-utils dependency

    I’m not a complete Linux newbie, but I have no clue in the Arch system how to deal with these. Would some one please make a suggestion, and thanks in advance.

  • For more information:

    inxi -v2

    If you do not have it installed, install it with sudo pacman -S inxi

    ?

    …how to deal with these.

    Search the forum. It’s the leftmost button in right group of buttonts at the top the page.

    If you search for 1:26.0.0.137-1, the first thread found answers the question about the pepper-flash.

    Briefly: it’s not an error. It’s an inconguence in the package versions numbering, which confuses pacman. Pepper-flash 27.0.0.183-1 is newer than 1:26.0.0.137-1. The thread returned by the search explains how to fix pepper-flash issue.

    Other two issues -with harfbuzz and xorg-server - are less clear. Please, use only pacman when asking questions, and post back here the full output, starting with the command, as it has been typed in and ending with final (empty) bash prompt.

    Pacman’s output is the most detailed, most complete, most clear, most informative, most helpful than from any other package manager.

    Please, run in terminal and post back the full output of the command:

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    
  • Judd and Just: Thanks for your quick response. I ran pacman as suggested:

  • @frogprince Looks like the system wasn’t upgraded for a decade or so. Just kidding.

    For the future, you should learn to interpret yourself what pacman says.

    It says: “Almost everything is OK and is ready for upgrade. Decide what to do with existing files.”

    You (me) decide to overwrite them. It is safe, in this case.

    Optional, but highly recommended: backup the whole system before going further. The next step is risky.

    Run the same command, adding –force to it. Repeat your answers, they are all good:

    sudo pacman -Syyuu --force
    
  • Just: that did it; the force flag got the system to finish its update. When it finished, I could not get the system to shut down to reboot, and had to force it with the power switch… :anguished: But on reboot, everything seems to work just fine.

    This machine is quick for its age but quirky, e.g., won’t run FreeBSD at all. It’s my test machine, and has a removable hard drive caddy so that I can try different systems. I installed Antergos specifically to learn more about the Arch system, so learning pacman is on my list. Antergos is the best looking KDE system I’ve found yet, and I intend to pursue it. Thanks for the help!

    that’s true ;)
