AUR packages like this may have to be uninstalled for now, then reinstalled after you bring your system fully up to date.


Aaah that did it removed zonefinder and was able to update Perl.

Wow, Thank You!

do I need to reinstall perl-io-interface and zonefinder? What are they used for?

perl-io-interface is required by zonefinder (video surveillance software system). Apart from that zonefinder is need for mythplugins-mythzoneminder which is to view CCTV footage from zoneminder in MythTV. Info taken from
