Warning about reflector-simple when updating

Hi, I have a little issue, when I update my Garuda KDE Lite i have this warning on Konsole:
warning: reflector-simple: local (2.0-1.1) is newer than garuda (2.0-1)

opening packseek that I use to serch apps I have 2 reflector-simple versions:
A Garuda source version 2.0-1
A AUR source version 3.3-1 that I don't know when I have installed (I have never istalled app in AUR, only chaotic.aur or garuda source)
I have not a verson

When I try to uninstall the AUR version I was unable to do it because reflector-simple is used by Garida Assistant ad dependency so it refuse to uninstall

How can I solve it, is not a great issue but if possible I don't wanna see the warning when updating

It’s not that you have 2 reflectors installed. Pacseek is telling you that you can pull reflector from AUR as well it’s simply listing the package from all the repos it has access to and informing you that hey you already have this package installed in your system with so and so version but we also have the option of downloading it from the AUR and other repos.

Plus you can ignore the warning safely. There are already forum posts regarding this


Ok i will leave with the warning
Version 3.3-1 seems installed (pacseek say is installed there is a mark on the installec lolum, is not only listed)

aur/reflector-simple 3.3-1 [+4 ~0.12] [Installed: 2.0-1.1]
Simple GUI wrapper for 'reflector'.

I am assuming it’s something like this? I don’t use pacseek so I wouldn’t know how this info is represented there but this means all the message I wrote above.

Here you can see how it show reflector-silmpe
You can use it, pacseek is a great app

Yeah that’s not telling you the version installed but the version available in the AUR repo. That’s the remote package info available via this command:

I don’t particularly see the need for it just a personal preference I like using and doing everything using commands rather than taking shortcuts. Also I like to keep my system as bloat free as possible so I removed several apps I knew I was never gonna use or need like octopi and kdeconnet.

I don't remember why, but we have a custom PKGBUILD for this one. It might be time to replace this one with the AUR version after evaluating this situation :thinking:
