what should i do with the mentioned packages - is there any thing that i need to do once - to get rid of some general issues

look forward to hear from you

celt and python2 are both packages that were dropped from the repos. It is highly likely you don’t need celt anymore and can just remove it.

sudo pacman -R celt

You can check if anything still needs python2 with:

pactree -r python2

If the command returns nothing, you can remove it as well.
