Missing AUR Packages: llvm10-libs

Greetings lovely community,

After successfully updating to Gnome 41 (that was a close one!), I briefly noticed there’s now a missing AUR package called llvm10-libs after running yay

:: Searching databases for updates...
:: Searching AUR for updates...
 -> Missing AUR Packages:  llvm10-libs
 -> Flagged Out Of Date AUR Packages:  gdm-prime  libgdm-prime
 there is nothing to do
[scott@endeavourOS ~]$ 

I’ve come across this issue before for other packages, and I know it helps to run pacman -Qi
It’s no longer in any of the Arch repos or the AUR. Anyone have any more info on this? I’m assuming it’s safe to simply remove it, but I’d like to know what y’all think about it. Thanks for any input and assistance.

[scott@endeavourOS ~]$ pacman -Qi llvm10-libs

Also running yay -Ss turns up nothing:

[scott@endeavourOS ~]$ yay -Ss llvm10-libs
[scott@endeavourOS ~]$ 

Also worth nothing:

@manuel says:
yay report about “missing AUR packages” is a bit misleading.
It seems to mean: I’ve found a package that is not found among available AUR packages.

In practice you may get that message when an installed package is no more available in official or AUR lists. Source: (click here)

Edit: Also noticed that yay put two empty text documents in my Home folder, called “Flagged” and “Missing” but there’s no info when I open these documents. Bit odd if you ask me.

pactree -r it and see if anything still needs it. If not, remove it.

[scott@endeavourOS ~]$ pactree -r llvm10-libs
[scott@endeavourOS ~]$ 

yay -Ss llvm libs

shows that it is no more available. Maybe you don’t need it?

remove it. Probably a former dependency of something else.

I edited my post maybe after y’all saw it, but it looks like yayadded two text files to my Home folder. I’m assuming I can just throw a period in from of them and let me just stay hidden?

Edit: Also thanks very much for the help and the super speedy replies! :wink:

I wouldn’t rename them. If you rename them, whatever was using them won’t be able to find them anymore. You might as well just delete them.

Out walking the dog now, but I’ll just delete them when I get back, not a problem. Thanks again for the help!
