Pamac Manager

Hello Guys,
I recently installed Garuda Linux. The ultimate edition KDE version. I updated and rebooted. Pamac-manager won't launch when I click it, neither does Add/Remove Apps.

Running pamac-manager in terminal yielded these results:

** (process:230033): WARNING **: 14:12:24.558: flatpak_plugin.vala:105: Error when getting information for file ?/var/lib/flatpak/appstream/flathub/x86_64/.timestamp?: No such file or directory
** Message: 14:12:24.558: flatpak_plugin.vala:125: last flathub appstream refresh is older than 6
** Message: 14:12:24.558: flatpak_plugin.vala:126: refreshing flathub appstream data

(pamac-manager:230033): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 14:12:24.867: g_application_run: assertion 'acquired_context' failed

Any Help would be appreciated.

Did you instal flatpak with pamac before?


in terminal try

pacman -Qi pamac


Hi. The most I did before updating garuda was going into pamac > preferences > and enabling flatpak from there.

This one probably needs to be rebuild (pamac-aur is version 10 already)
