    What command do I have to issue to do this file deletion before updating ?
    Sorry, for the dumb question.

    Either

    sudo rm -i /usr/lib/libmozjs-52*
    sudo pacman -Syu
    

    or

    sudo pacman -Syu --force
    

    You mightt read about it in the forum here, or here, or here, or here.

  • When I try to remove it it says:

    rm: remove regular file ‘/usr/lib/libmozjs-52/.so’?
    rm: remove symbolic link '/usr/lib/libmozjs-52/.so.0?

    I click enter thinking it deleted it and try to update and is says:

    error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
    js52 : /usr/lib/libmozjs-52.so.0 exists in the filesystem.

  • @darkkhais
    sudo rm -r /usr/lib/libmozjs-52.so.0
    then update

  • Thanks so much man.

    You’re welcome!
    There are no dumb questions here.

  • @darkkhais better to ask twice and do not get a messed up system.
    So we prefere to do not know anything about a dump question here ;)

  • @darkkhais Not a dumb question mate, This community is the friendliest I have ever seen. That’s another reason I use antergos.
