Ungoogled-chromium broken after update

I just updated via upd. I then rebooted. When I run ungoogled-chromium I get the following error.

chromium %U
/usr/lib/chromium/chromium: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/chromium/chromium: undefined symbol: hb_subset_input_set_retain_gids

I reinstalled ungoogled-chromium. However this did not make a difference, as it resulted in same error.

sudo pacman -S ungoogled-chromium

sudo pacman -Syuu

downgraded 'harfbuzz', and now chromium launches.


funny thing afer a timeshift rollback and running

sudo pacman -Syyu

These same updates are no longer listed.

Chromium (which shared the same problem) has been updated and now works with

harfbuzz-3.0.0-1  harfbuzz-icu-3.0.0-1

I guess Ungoogled-chromium has done or will do shortly the same.
So, you could try to update everything again if you want...
