there is nothing to do

:thinking: :thinking:

Check your pacman.conf you may have accidentally enabled the multilib and multilib testing repos.


Whenever you get that error the first thing I would recommend is re-sorting your mirrors from the welcome app.

I believe the multilib repo is enabled by default on EOS.

It is. I went that direction because they have newer packages then the standard repos. The only way I can think of that happening is if they enabled the testing repos after or in conjunction with the stable ones.

Are you installing this desktop along with another install such as kde?

That will make the error go away, but it isn’t always a good idea to solve it that way.

If it is a mirror problem and the mirror is in a bad state you are essentially forcing your system into a matching bad state.

Also, I am not sure why you would use that crazy sequence. You can just use pacman -Syuu instead of those 3-4 commands. However, I don’t generally recommend doing that until you determine why you have newer packages.

The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the

repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately

after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.

#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,

enable the multilib repositories as required here.

#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

An example of a custom package repository. See the pacman manpage for

tips on creating your own repositories.

#SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
#Server = file:///home/custompkgs

Heres the bottom half of my pacman.conf.

Edit: I did a
sudo reflector --latest 30 --country US --age 6 --protocol https --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

then this

Now all is well, no more warnings. Not sure what happened lol.

It’s what @dalto said then. Your mirrors got out of whack somehow and caught back up.
