Is Paccache Dead?

Hi, I tried to install paccache on some of my newer computers after installing EndeavourOS as well as some VMs running EndeavourOS, but I couldn’t find it anywhere, not even in the AUR. Is paccache no longer maintained or something!?

It’s part of pacman, not an individual package. It’s a script. → https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Pacman#Cleaning_the_package_cache

It seems to be a part of pacman, not an installable package.

paccache is provided by the package pacman-contrib.

Update your system and install it:

sudo pacman -Syu pacman-contrib

Whoops, you learn something new every day! :sweat_smile:

Going to do this on my VM right now (my main laptop has it but not my VM)!
