Orphaned KDE5 packages broke SDDM and User Switcher upon removal

I recently did some cleanup on my system, and removed orphans which broke both the SDDM Sweet theme, and User Switcher widget in KDE Plasma. My guess is that this is due to the upgrade to KDE6.

SDDM displayed the message:
file:///usr/share/sddm/themes/Sweet/Main.qml:(26-28):1module "org.kde.plasma.(extras,components,core)" is not installed. Please choose another theme

User Switcher was shown as Unknown Widget once logged into a session.

The packages, once reinstalled, that fixed the issue were: plasma-framework5 and kdeplasma-addons.

I wasn’t able to find much while searching, but figured it out from checking pacman logs. Just hoping this will help someone in the future.

Thanks for all your work!
