Cannot resolve dependencies during update

Hello all along,

when I update my system, I receive the following message:

:: Complete system update is started ...
Dependencies are resolved ...
A search is made for conflicting packages ...
Error: Process could not be prepared (Cannot resolve) dependencies.
:: Installation of alsa-lib ( violates dependency "alsa-lib=1.2.5", required by lib32-alsa-lib
:: Installation of libpcap (1.10.1-1) violates dependency "libpcap=1.10.0", needed by lib32-libpcap

Has anyone an idea, how I can resolve that issue?

inxi -Faz is here, if needed:

Does the same happen when you update using upd?

How do I do that?

Type upd in terminal

╭─[email protected] in ~
╰─λ udp
fish: Unknown command: udp

its upd not udp

:astonished: Oh sorry.

no change, the same error. :frowning:

You should post the complete output, starting from where you typed what.


Wasn't this the one which was solved editing etc/pacman.conf and enabling the multilib repo?
Could you please check if it is enabled for you?
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist


Thats the solution! Thank you sooo much! :star_struck:

You are absolutely right. Please excuse my carelessness. I will be more reliable in the future.

Thank you all for for the help.

Case closed.
