Try to build it as AUR package with a helper, e.g.

paru pamac-all

or

paru pamac-aur

I don't know what you prefer or it is best.
Please consider that we strongly discourage using GUI-based package managers for installation and especially updates.
For searching this is OK, but there are many alternatives.
There are many discussions in the forum about it. I'm just linking a recent one I remember:

PS: It looks like a reboot is pending
