Unable to update system

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing icu (71.1-1) breaks dependency 'libicuuc.so=70-64' required by harfbuzz-icu
:: installing icu (71.1-1) breaks dependency 'libicuuc.so=70-64' required by raptor

Thanks a lot, it worked!
But when I do update from yay, I am getting this

 error fetching librewolf-bin: fatal: could not create work tree dir 'librewolf-bin': Permission denied 
	 context: exit status 128

I am not sure if this is because some permission issues on some directory used by yay or it is due to the fact that the librewolf-bin package is flagged out-of-date:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/librewolf-bin

Perhaps you could hold off updating the package till it is updated by its AUR maintainer?

@Helpneeded,

I see that librewolf-bin is already updated. You might want to try updating it again.

Its happening for all the three packages.

Looks like you broke your directory permissions at some point (e.g. you ran something with sudo).

Look in $HOME/.cache/yay and correct permissions for directories that are owned by root.
