ELF file error during update related to librewolfssl and xfsprogs

After running garuda-update I'm getting following errors:

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libwolfssl.so is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libwolfssl.so.35 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libwolfssl.so.35.5.1 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

The upgrade itself worked. That said, I think it's an issue on it's own that these error weren't emphasized by the updater program. I only saw them by coincidence and remembered that something like this happened a while ago and I ignored it back then.

Anyways, this happened after the updater installed xfsprogs. So I installed them again and got the same error. I didn't install librewolfssl since it's big, but I assume the whole error has something to do with a dependency. pacman -Dk shows no problems.

Note: I also had this warning during the update:

warning: /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist installed as /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew

The errors are in the text output of garuda-update. I don't have the output anymore but the result from reinstalling xfsprogs:

:: Processing package changes...
(1/1) reinstalling xfsprogs                             [------------------------------] 100%
HERE

Open a support ticket.

I don't know if I have a problem with that library. It's not even installed. I only wanted to report that Garuda throws an error during update, which might be a missing dependency for xfsprogs.

Probably not a Garuda issue, rather there is likely a problem with those specific files (such as corruption or a mismatched file format). It may be helpful to reinstall that package.

sudo pacman -S wolfssl

Yes, that did it. I didn't think so far to go from trying to install "librewolf", which was something else and so big I didn't want to install it, to trying "wolfssl". The error referred to "libwolfssl", so I had the right idea but got confused about what to reinstall.

That said, it's still so that if I hadn't seen that error and tried to fix it, my Garuda install wouldn't have done anything to fix it and believed everything was fine. It would maybe be good to add some error catching mechanism to the garuda-install script.
