I’m on Arco Linux(the most basic one).
I have installed the
nodejs package with pacman.
Now when I run
sudo pacman -Su I am getting
nodejs-lts-gallium and nodejs are in conflict. Remove nodejs? [y/N].
But when I run
pacman -Qi nodejs-lts-gallium, it says
error: package 'nodejs-lts-gallium' was not found
How do I remove the
nodejs-lts-gallium artifacts causing the conflict?
What is happening is that an installed package had a new dependecy to
nodejs-lts-gallium. Or a transitive dependency does. E.g.
InstalledPackageA now depends on
packageB that depends on
You can see what would be upgraded with the following command :
pacman -Su --print --print-format %n
From that you can check what package does explicitely depend on it, with for example (edited thanks to Harm’s suggestion):
pacman -Si $(pacman -Su --print --print-format %n) | grep -B9 nodejs-lts-gallium
A package should appear
Depends On [...] nodejs-lts-gallium, that’s the package which requires it.
