Curl command to get the latest packages

Thought I'd just bump this thread with a related question. Basically, there's no issues when using the update command in terminal. However, I often use the curl command to get the latest packages that are not pushed via the update script and this issue still exists. So I was just curious if there is a way to fix this problem for those of us who enjoy doing what I do to ensure I'm on the latest packages of each iso release in the index url. Cheers

It's not really an "issue", as you say--most of us don't want to be downloading extra packages when we are just trying to keep our system up to date.

It sounds like you are asking for a problem that doesn't exist to be solved. Those who want to "do what you do" and download extra packages from the updated ISO can just go ahead and do it! :white_check_mark:

  1. Run the update script
  2. sudo pacman -S --needed the packages in the ISO

Of course, the old ISO packages aren't going to work. The old ISO still has the old packages, so there would be nothing new to install anyway.
