Should I let install systemd twice?

I got a kind of a problem while updating packages. One of the packages (unfortunately I don't know which one) wants to install lib32-systemd.

Normally I wouldn't object to packages installing multiple versions of libraries, but I have got a serious dilemma about letting to install two of one of (if not the) most basic program in a Linux system. I simply afraid that I wouldn't be able to boot Garuda anymore after it :frowning:

Sorry, I don't know how to get that list as I'm using an graphical interface of pamac.

Updating with Pamac is not advised. Please open your terminal and update with this command:

garuda-update

If you encounter any issues with the update command, you can paste them into the thread.

:point_up_2: That looks fine, but I can see it is not the full output. Is there a problem that has not been pasted above, or a prompt you are unsure how to respond to?

This is a package that is installed on your system which needs to be updated. You should definitely allow it to be updated, if that is what you are wondering.

It is not the full output because garuda-update then asks for install confirmation:

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n]

which is why I stopped right here.

I don't know why garuda-update doesn't show that, but in the graphical pamac it shows systemd as "to install" instead of "to update" which, as I think, means it is a new package and thus the result of doing that may change my system.

No worries, it looks like you are fine to proceed with installation--it looks like a fairly typical update. You should reboot afterward, as there is a kernel update in there.

The Garuda devs put special care into setting up the garuda-update tool to automatically resolve package conflicts, apply hotfixes to issues that suddenly emerge, and other considerations which are not built into Pamac. You are considerably less likely to break your system with an update if you are using the garuda-update tool.

OK, I installed it and made a system reboot and so far it looks fine :smiley:

Maybe I's "a little" too much hot head about this package. Thank you very much @BluishHumility !

Hi all.
I assigned the solution to @BluishHumility , since we mark as such the post that gives the solving suggestion, not the relevant implementation.
