EOS base should not be in the AUR, but part of the EOS repo.

Try reinstall of the package?

sudo pacman -S eos-base

Looks like eos-base is no longer in endeavouros repository. That must be why the system identifies it as having been installed from AUR.


so, can eos-base safely removed?

I guess so. I don’t have it at all in a recently installed EnOS.

For any PACKAGE, to see what is dependent on it you could run:
pactree -r PACKAGE

it was never installed per default so you have installed it manually.
So yes uninstall it. sudo pacman -R eos-base


eos-base was an experimental meta package (it only contains some other packages as dependencies). It was never really needed.


Whenever you remove a meta-package, pay close attention next time you remove orphans to make sure there is nothing there that needs to be converted to explicitly installed.


thank you guys!
