Update failing (when trying pacman -Syu within live installer environment)

I was doing a fresh install of Garuda Linux Dr460nized and after booting into the ISO, I decided to do a sudo pacman -Syu before installing just to check how big updates I'll have to do. But there were a lot of conflicts and it refused to update. The output is below -

You can't successfully update the live installer environment anyway, and the issue won't happen in an installed system. That is, you're creating an issue that doesn't exist.
