Package causes conflict when updating, but does not exist

Hi
I tried to use yay to update my system because doing it through the assistant kept timing out. However, the update would also fail when I used yay because of an unrecoverable package conflict, and when I try to uninstall on of the packages causing the conflict, my computer says it does not exist.

Do you guys have any ideas on what to do? Thanks!

If you remove "--noconfirm" can you respond "Y" to the prompt?

Remove --noconfirm. It inhibits the ability of garuda-update to function properly because it passes noconfirm to pacman.

garuda-update just worked!

Last time I did that it kept erroring out, but this time it worked!
Thanks so much guys
