[OPEN] pamac error

Post by plumpwizard »

i keep getting this error in Package Manager
conflicting files: - /etc/pacman.d/hooks/fix-appstream-data.hook exists in both arcolinux-pamac-all and arcolinux-pamac-all-dev - /usr/local/bin/fix-appstream-data.sh exists in both arcolinux-pamac-all and arcolinux-pamac-all-dev
thing is fix-appstream-data.hook is not even there!

i can't update through pacman in terminal, it says everything is up to date BUT IT IS LYING

im using kernel 5.15.41-1-lts on a ThinkPad X220. i just swapped in my old HD from a different x220 and everything works fine except pacman and Package Manager...

remove any app that is pamac or pamac-related

our application is called

Code: Select all

arcolinux-pamac-all
that is the only one that can be on your system

pacman is not letting me remove a package called pamac-gtk
[buttx@moloch ~]$ sudo pacman -R pamac-gtk
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing pamac-gtk breaks dependency 'pamac-gtk' required by arcolinux-pamac-all
UPDATE: i must have installed the dev version at some point and it left some junk files, so i had to RE-install arcolinux-pamac-all-dev and then remove with pacman -Rsn
