I'm having a small problem with the software updater. I was able to apply all of the updates that appeared this morning with the exception of archmerge-pipemenus-git / version 6.1.3, which I had to use to replace the Pipemenus for Archmerge / version (6.1.2) indicated in the updater. I receive this message:
Transaction commitment failure:
incompatible files:
archmerge-pipemenus-git: /usr/share/applications/conkyzen.desktop already exists in filesystem
Without first getting opinion, I don't want to go in and start deleting anything since I don't want to screw up anything.

you are asking for trouble having such an old system/package

or you have been rolling since - admiration and respect then

or you used a super old iso to install your OS - that is not smart

words like archmerge have not been used anymore since like 4-5 years ago

here are the new isos

https://ant.seedhost.eu/arcolinux/iso/v23.09.03/

the reference to anything with archmerge has been abandoned years ago

all our packages use arcolinux in the name

remove as you see fit

arcolinux-pipemenus-git is the correct name
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
