I’m running a VM of EndeavourOS and am attempting to update.
sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date

endeavouros is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: Replace jack with extra/jack2? [Y/n] y

:: Replace virtualbox-guest-dkms with community/virtualbox-guest-utils? [Y/n] y
:: Replace virtualbox-guest-dkms with community/virtualbox-guest-utils-nox? [Y/n] y
looking for conflicting packages...
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: virtualbox-guest-utils and virtualbox-guest-utils-nox are in conflict
What should I do here? I’m new to Arch (and Linux in general).
how long is it since your last update ?
You need to resolve the conflict manually but seems simple…
virtualbox-guest-dkms as it is not been at the repo for some time now already:
sudo pacman -R virtualbox-guest-dkms now update system again.
And install the replacement you want, i would think you will not want the no-X version… so:
sudo pacman -S virtualbox-guest-utils
And welcome at the forum, ask if something is unclear no dumb questions known here
I only downloaded the ISO like a week or two ago, but I guess I forgot to update . Thank you so much though, this solved my problem. So simple, couldn’t be clearer.
Now to get used to pacman…
The spoken wisdom of blissful computing.
