I see error message to get regular update : x264 (3:0.160.r3011.cde9a93-1) update does not satisfy dependency to continue update it adds that this breaks dependency with needed for ffmpeg2.8 package.

[sudo] password for endeavos:

The AUR package ffmmpeg2.8 is in need of an update, if you need this for a particular package, then wait with updating or look for another solution.

You can read it over here:


What needs FFmpeg 2.8 still?

Thanks :slight_smile: … I am waiting for now.

I think it is wise to investigate if you really need it, just like @jonathon said.

I was investigating and this is weird… I have both ffmpeg (2.4 & 2.8 AUR) installed… lol I cannot recall what install demanded to install both or why.

Just removed a list of orphaned files and among those ones was ffmpeg 2.8 AUR, used cli:
sudo pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qtdq)

And after removing all them including ffmpeg AUR package, I updated and installed those pending 2 ffmpeg files successfully: sudo pacman -Syu
As in the image.
