Please help with diagnosing and fixing dependency problem.

When trying to update Garuda, I get following error:

:: installing xdman-beta-bin (8.0.29-6) breaks dependency 'xdman' required by firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor

I’ve found that I can use pacman -Qi to find dependencies of packages.

According to that, firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor requires xdman. The package xdman-beta-bin (that’s getting updated from 8.0.29-5 to 8.0.29-6) says it “provides” xdman, so I assume that should satisfy the dependency.

This is where I got lost.

  • How does installing package breaks dependency? Does the updated package no longer provide the dependency? (Is there some way to check this?)
  • I assume I can’t control what package maintainers put as dependences for the packages. How can I resolve the issue? I’m not sure if I should just uninstall the extension as it was included with the system. Either way, I’d like to know proper way to deal with the situation to be able to deal with similar situations in the future.
  • Are there some good practices to study to avoid dependency issues in the future? It happens to me quite a lot that I can’t update system because of dependency issue.

I’m sorry if this is stupid question, I’ve been using Debian-based distros for my whole life till now, the philosophy there is quite different regarding package management.

Welcome to the Forums!

Not sure why you’re getting this warning, but the package has been removed a while back and is no longer associated with Firedragon.

There is no xdman required, nor firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor.

So you can remove both xdman and firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor which should clear out the deps.


i had this issue today even though xdman was removed weeks ago and octopi reported that firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor was explicitly installed and so was xdman-beta-bin so i used octopi to change the install reason for both, then i removed firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor and then i used Garuda Assistant to clear my orphans and caches after which the update proceeded normally.


I have proceeded by removing firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor using octopi. The xdman-beta-bin was installed only as dependency of it for me (not explicitely installed), so I got automatically offered to remove it too (which I confirmed).

that package should be on your system and should not cause further issues.
the old package xdman was replaced by it.

the only one you should remove is firedragon-extension-xdm-browser-monitor which has been removed from all editions of Garuda by the developer team.
