  • I had noticed that a few days ago but mine only has one now. I dont remember if I changed it or not though lol. If they are both pointing to the same mirrorlist file then you can safely remove the extra one.

  • Sorry to post in a thread that is already marked as solved. I have noticed the same thing and I had a look around inside pacman and couldn’t quite find where I would delete one of the multilibs.

    I went to Settings and Clean Package Cache and Fully Clean Cache.

    Still have two multilibs showing up when I do in Terminal:

    sudo pacman -Syu

    Would you please mind telling me what the command structure is for eliminating one of the multilibs?

    Nothing inside Disowned Packages. Syncing mirrors doesn’t do much as it still displays 2 multilibs.

  • You did not mention you know this, so will post here:

    All of your repos are in the /etc/pacman.conf file

    It will have a line stating: [multilib] and then some other lines directly under it.
    If there are two of them uncommented, that is where your problem is.

    Edit it from a terminal with:

    sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
    

    Find your extra repo and delete or comment out with ‘#’ (as well as the extra lines directly under it)
    Ctrl+o to save then Ctrl+x to exit

    Of course you can edit with a GUI editor and do a Ctrl+f to search and destroy!

    I can’t imagine where else it would be coming from if it is not there.
