Trouble installing mullvad-vpn and nvm

I am trying to install mullvad-vpn from the AUR store, but running into this issue: error: target not found: nvm
==> ERROR: ‘pacman’ failed to install missing dependencies.
==> Missing dependencies:
→ nvm
==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

And trying to install nvm gives me this error:
sudo pacman -S nvm
error: target not found: nvm

Try this:

sudo pacman -Syu && yay -Sua mullvad-vpn-bin
OR
sudo pacman -Syu && yay -Sua mullvad-vpn

The -bin package would download and build faster.

There is no package in the official repos called nvm. Should it be neovim?

I see. So, based on @sammiev 's comment, try:

sudo pacman -Syu && yay -Sua mullvad-vpn-bin nvm
OR
sudo pacman -Syu && yay -Sua mullvad-vpn nvm

nvm is a AUR package, try yay instead of pacman.

OK, did that, and got the following:

yay -S mullvad-vpn-bin
AUR Explicit (1): mullvad-vpn-bin-2024.3-1
:: (1/1) Downloaded PKGBUILD: mullvad-vpn-bin
  1 mullvad-vpn-bin                  (Build Files Exist)
==> Packages to cleanBuild?
==> [N]one [A]ll [Ab]ort [I]nstalled [No]tInstalled or (1 2 3, 1-3, ^4)
==> 

What do I choose here?

Just choose the default. Just hit enter.
