error installing repo packages
Hello, since sometime in July, I have been getting this error when attempting a system update.
I have tried finding a fix for this myself, but so far I have failed to do so and at this point a bunch of important system packages need updating so I decided to ask for help here.
According to threads regarding similar issues, this may be kernel related and could be resolved by switching to a different kernel, I have read that this is easily doable on EOS using AKM, however trying to install AKM: sudo pacman -S akm results in error: target not found: akm, and I am not that advanced a user to try to switch the kernel myself.
My kernel is 6.4.3-arch1-2 (64-bit), I’m using an Nvidia RTX 3060 Laptop GPU and am on X11, if any of this info is relevant.
This has nothing to do with the kernel and you shouldn’t need to mess with it. The problem is that the version of nvidia-utils and lib32-nvidia-utils seems to be out of sync for some reason. There is a version mismatch 535.86.05 vs 535.54.03.
The first thing that I would try would be updating your mirrors and then do a full system update sudo pacman -Syu.
