Can't update / add remove software

Been using garuda dragonized KDE version for months ! I love it so much...

Today, I wanted to start the Add Remove software to check for updates using the App and it's not opening...

I can run Pacman -Syu but I can't update anymore through the App (GUY) or even add/remove soft using the Add Remove Application

Any idea what could be causing this ?
tks in advance...


Welcome to what makes Arch truly fun - the terminal!


Doctor: "I'm sorry, you have Arch."
Patient: "What's the prognosis, doc?"
Doctor: "It's terminal."


Don't delete that! That's good stuff right there!

All the GUI package management applications are broken right now because the pacman libraries changed. They'll be updated soon, just have to wait.


Tks @Catra that i can do :slight_smile: (Wait)

SO I'll have to run pacman -Syu manually in a few days ? Or something will run by itself in the background ?

Yes, it's all terminal and pacman for Syu!

Plus good, ol' makepkg -si for installing AUR packages.
