Update list for noobs

Ok i know to the distro gurus this is going to sound like a lame question .But is it possible when there is a new update and we have to install another set of packages or update a cmd eg starship.or update the keyringIs it possible to post the to do list .Just a thought .

I think
sudo pacman -Syu
does most of work and you don't need to worry about anything else.

Of course, sometimes bugs may appear that require fixing.

Furthermore, I'd like to enphasize that pacman provides, apart from the final transaction status (hopefully OK), also many useful information that should be reviewed, to check if you have e.g. config changes, etc. that imo are a real, small, todo list after update.

OK thanks for every ones advice its much appreciated.Can i ask sudo pacman -Syu does the same as yay and updates both the konsole and the packages.?

pacman does update the officials packages from Arch. To update packages from AUR I suggest you to use paru instead

Yes but you don't need to install it, it is already installed by default in Garuda

You can also check here to pre-emptively get ahead of any big manual interventions that may occur. But if you're the type to update weekly like I am, the forum here will get you ready if there's a bug coming.
