So updating a client’s system I find that the updates affecting pacman/yay are affecting pamac also, in that it won’t install pamac-aur nor pamac-aur-git, nor pamac-all. So he can wait patiently. Yay is working fine
On the one hand, it does seem strange that it hasn’t even been started yet. On the other hand, pamac is really targeting Manjaro and they have control over when they introduce pacman 6 so they don’t have to worry about the timing as much.
I think this is a wonderful opportunity to ditch Pamac, which by any standard, is not a particularly good piece of software, and use pacman, like the good lord intended. And some terminal aur helper, like yay, perhaps.
I’m running an Archlinux installation with testing enabled and today, pacman 6.0.0-2 landed on testing. Pamac-aur-git was removed. I tried to build pamac-aur-git with pacman 6.0 libs, and it doesn’t work.
I opened a bug on pamac bug tracker: https://gitlab.manjaro.org/applications/pamac/-/issues/1047
So, when pacman 6.0 will land on core, you will have to remove pamac-aur and wait for it to be compatible.
