Looks like my packages' respositories are changed - is this normal?

Hello Garuda users,

I hadn’t updated Garuda for a long time and when I ran garuda-update, I got this response where it looks like the old repositories/sources are being replaced with extra. Is this normal?

i update every day and i have it as well, havn’t noticed any ill effects thus far

It looks like this is in preparation to KDE6, to be able to keep old programs made for KF5 while having KF6 installed.


Those packages are not changing repositories, they were already in extra. Rather, they are being renamed to add a “5” to the name. It has something to do with the upcoming Plasma 6 release.


As bluishhumility said its a rename,

Same here. The only effect is, it broke Plasma notifications for me, and I was stuck with knopwob dunst:

I fixed it by removing dunst package as suggested here (simply restarting plasmashell didn’t help, I had to relog).

Yeah, Arch did away with the “community” repository a while back, so there’s just “core”, “extra” and “multilib” official Arch repos (plus testing, etc.). I can’t find the announcement; it may have been on a mailist.
