Update process fails due to a dependency of a package

Hey guys,
i noticed a small problem today when updating my computer. specifically when updating from electron19 → 20 which is used as a dependency of element-desktop.

# swh @ ryzen in ~ [15:34:15] C:1
$ LANG=C sudo pacman -Syu   
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community                               6,7 MiB  5,59 MiB/s 00:01 [------------------------------------] 100%
 multilib is up to date
 endeavouros is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing electron (20.0.0-1) breaks dependency 'electron19' required by element-desktop

is it possible to perform an update without electron19 and how exactly should I proceed?

Thanks in advance


sudo pacman -Syu electron19
