Browse in add remove software shows "No Package found"

I don’t see any Package list of available software. Also when I try to search for some package I think it is not showing me all relevant packages…

Did you use


in terminal?

yes and garuda-update too.

Try octopi or pacseek.

I think it’s time to remove pamac from packages-desktop if still present.


Try downgrading archlinux-appstream-data to a previous version.

sudo downgrade archlinux-appstream-data

There it is. Who’s maintaining Gnome?

Confused Looking For GIF by Looney Tunes


You :smiley:

I remove it tonight.


This gets my vote. On another note I’ve gone to pamac-nosnap out of the various pamac versions.

I am a total Newbie and don’t understand any of the above. Can someone please give me some command which I can type in terminal to solve my problem?
Also when I click on Installed packages it shows nothing.

Add/remove software (pamac is not pacman) is a third party app.
We can’t fix anything.
Use in terminal pacseek or for only searching, octopi as GUI.
Install apps only in terminal

sudo pacman -Syu <app-name>

The main reason peeps use pacseek is because you run it from your terminal, select your item from the list presented after doing your search, and let pacseek install from the terminal.
