How to remove or block FAKEROOT octopi garuda hooks package?

Garuda 2.6.22-1 update today installed FAKEROOT package and I neither need it or want it.

System will not let me remove it, nor will it allow me to remove the octopi , claiming garuda-hooks needs it.

This feels sad, as I was an early adopter of Garuda back in 2019. I am not interested in installing this pkg on this machine or os: Please can someone advise how to remove it or block it.

There is nothing to be worried about.

LOL, wrong on all accounts, but I do admire your indeterministic style! :smiley:
