╭─zucni@ETNA in ~ took 2s

I still new to Linux so I might not have known the best search terms for this problem but when I tried looking up my error I was just getting posts that were not relevant.

I got a notification from garuda-system-maintenance that my system is outdated. So I attempted to run and update:

:: Synchronizing package databases…
garuda downloading…
core downloading…
extra downloading…
multilib downloading…
chaotic-aur downloading…
blackarch downloading…
:: Starting full system upgrade…

warning: python-pynput: local (1.7.6-3) is newer than chaotic-aur (1.7.6-2.3)
warning: qemu-base: ignoring package upgrade (8.0.4-2 => 8.1.0-2)
resolving dependencies…
warning: ignoring package qemu-base-8.1.0-2
warning: cannot resolve “qemu-base=8.1.0-2”, a dependency of “qemu-desktop”
:: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:

:: Do you want to skip the above package for this upgrade? [y/N] n
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: unable to satisfy dependency ‘qemu-base=8.1.0-2’ required by qemu-desktop
Press enter to exit

Skipping the packages just leads to exiting out without updating and I still have the outdated notification. I am not sure what gemu-desktop is or if I could uninstall it


Thank you! That also worked for me
