Add/Remove software error

Hello.

Every day that I try to install an application via Add/Remove Software it fails with "Failed to prepare transaction: invalid or corrupted database"

I found a workaround running "sudo pacman -Syy" in the terminal but is kinda anoying to do it every day.

What do you think guys?

Thank you.

Update the system with

update

in terminal

If this fail install

sudo pacman -S garuda-update

then again "update" in terminal.

Use search function first before posting, also post your inxi -Faz.

I just edited my post, thank you. And no matter what application is, with everyone, filezilla, ruby, gimp, olive, its just everytime I restart my computer i need to run sudo pacman -Syy

Im gonna try this.

I get "warning: garuda-update-1.4.0-1 is up to date -- skipping
there is nothing to do"

Then you're good. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
