(i've uncommented XferCommand = /usr/bin/curl -L -C - -f -o %o %u /etc/pacman.conf because i was facing maximum size limit error previously. i don't think that has to do anything with this error)

I had something similar happen.

  1. Are you using the chaotic-aur version?

  2. Try refreshing the repos or hit the system upgrade button in Garuda's Welcome app and try updating again.

Here is my thread for reference;

  1. yeah, tried installing from octopi. that is listed as chaotic-aur version
  2. already uninstalled this package, updating wont work :frowning:

RodneyCK remind me about garuda welcome. well, i removed that, using garuda assistant for everything now actually.
and i found that from garuda assistant pacman mirrorlist doesn't get updated. it says updated but if i open that again, i see the previous list.

Garuda Welcome is a way to get to all the Garuda apps, including Garuda Assistant, which is what you want in this case.

As far as the mirrorlist not getting updated, that is odd. There is a separate app in Garuda Assistant for refreshing mirrorlist, 'Refresh MIrrorlist (Reflector-Simple),' try that, then pull up a terminal and type 'update', then enter.

i am working around manually from etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
the app you mention is the same app that pops up while working in garuda assistant.

Haven't a clue what you mean here.

the app you mention is the same app that pops up while working in garuda assistant.

So, have you tried selecting different countries? What are getting, an error???

Edit to add: I am seeing a lot of recent post with different 'libicuiXXX" errors. I am assuming (no expert) that the recent update has caused this and maybe it is the maintainers of various apps that have not pushed an update out yet which is causing all these issues? :man_shrugging:

  1. i mean i solved that issue by editing mirrorlist manually
  2. no error shown
  3. yeah, i think it is a dev side issue. waiting lets see what happens.

There is an app 'garuda-update' that fixed it.

In terminal use 'update'

Only on KDE, for me, Kate crash and more?, i3wm is fine.

Thanks, and yes, several posts in the last few hours, all different apps and different versions of libicuiXXX causing issues. Hopefully they all hit the update again.
