This morning I went to do updates to my box (sudo pacman -Syu) just to get off a fresh start to the day. When I came across:

Thanks for all the responses, I meant to add more to the thread after I accidently posted, then saw a post from a team member to read the FAQ, then saw the thread deleted, I read the FAQ couldn't find anything about this, then saw the thread was back haha. I'm so confused!
Anyways, I tried to install poppler-git with pacman and wasn't able to do so. I then tried to remove poppler but too much is dependant on it to remove so that didn't work either. So tried to update poppler itself and it wouldn't because it's conflicting with poppler-git which I don't understand because it's not installed.
Missed what part? Something is trying to install poppler-git. However, that would require removing poppler which it can't do because poppler-qt5 requires a certain version. So removing poppler-qt5 would be one suggestion.
Now I'm really confused... I opened up my mirrorlist but didn't change anything at all yet. Decided to do a pacman -Syu for I don't know... The 10th time, and it worked... No longer barking about any poppler-git/poppler conflictions...
Maybe there was a mirror that was having issues like was suggested?? I dunno... But I wish I understood it better before it decided to fix itself...
