System update/update fails, pipewire-pulse and pipewire-alsa are in conflict

Hi y'all - usually by the time I have a package conflict issue when running update from command-line and/or clicking on System update in Garuda Assistant, someone else has posted it and there's already a solution. I've checked the two other posts that are related to audio package conflicts, but I'm not sure I found what I'm looking for. This is what happens when I try to run update or click on System update:

:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: pipewire-support and pipewire-pulse are in conflict (pulseaudio). Remove pipewire-pulse? [y/N] y
:: pipewire-support and pipewire-alsa are in conflict (pulseaudio-alsa). Remove pipewire-alsa? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: unable to satisfy dependency 'pipewire-alsa' required by pipewire-support
:: unable to satisfy dependency 'pipewire-pulse' required by pipewire-support
:: removing pipewire-pulse breaks dependency 'pulseaudio' required by plasma-pa

I've even tried to remove those packages first with paru -Rns but that didn't work either and I got a similar error output of unable to satisfy dependencies, etc.

Thank you!!

I do have the same message popping up when updating, even if the "pulseaudio" option in the Garuda Assistant is turned off.
