I update all my distros on a 2 weekly basis. Including the arch based ones. I just updated all my arch ones about 4-5 days ago and so I'll address this in 9 days.
If need be I can rebuild necessary AUR packages (including pamac-aur, yay) in terminal. Except for garuda vm, I don't use the chaos repo.
Yes, pamac is useful for one off tasks, but since it's from manjaro one has to accept that its release timing is slightly behind arch. Same if you use manjaro stable and some AUR packages can't be updated because a dependency hasn't hit the stable repo yet. Pros and cons.
One just has to accept it and move on.
