Nohang and nohang-git conflict

Hello all,

Newbie here, both to Linux and to the Garuda forums. I'm having a bit of trouble upgrading my system. It seems that upgrading breaks dependencies of ffmpeg-compat-57, and I'm unsure how to proceed. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Output below:

sudo pacman -Syu

Why is this package installed? If nothing depends on it, remove it, then try updating again.


That did the trick. I went down a rabbit hole of dependencies looking at x265 and My own stupid mistake. ffmpeg-compat-57 was only an optional dependency for Spotify to play local files, and I have other ways to do that.
Thank you! Marked as solved.
