Updates end with Missing AUR Packages

Hi… after every update, the process ends with the message below. Is this normal and to be ignored?

Many thanks

:: Searching AUR for updates…

there is nothing to do

These are all packages that have been removed from out repos.

It is up to you if you want to keep them or remove them. I would remove nvidia-installer-db and nvidia-installer-dkms. Those are old scripts for installing nvidia drivers.

grub2-theme-endeavouros is the grub theme that comes up when you reboot the computer. If you choose to remove it, be sure to also change the grub config to not use it anymore.

grub-tools is the automation we used to provide around grub. It is up to you if you want to keep or remove this.

Thank you @dalto for your reply. This EOS installation functions perfectly. If these packages will not cause problems I will leave them alone.

Was the grub theme indefinitely removed? I quite liked its look. Default grub looks plain and boring

Yes. We now use a background instead of the full theme.

You can continue to use the theme if you still have it installed.

I do not, but I also dont have a background. How do I install that?

Ensure you have the package endeavouros-theming installed and then add this to your /etc/default/grub

GRUB_BACKGROUND: "/usr/share/endeavouros/splash.png"

Then run:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
