What is garuda-update package?

while performing updates i noticed that there is a package named garuda-update . What is it for?

It is a foundamental package that self-updates and then updates your system and other stuff (mirrorlists, keyrings, etc.):

E.g. it was updated 1 hour ago to fix the notorious jack2 conflict (and many times in the past for similar situations)

That's awesome.I was wondering why I didn't have that issue although it was being discussed in the forum.
Is this only used in garuda?
Coming from manjaro didn't see anything similar to this.

garuda-update

Yes

That's the reason I left there. :grin:

I was actually thinking about implementing something like this on manjaro . But you guys have already implemented it. Some things that this distribution does greatly aren't well known .

I actually stumbled upon the garuda-update file (/usr/bin/garuda-update) last week while I was poking around looking for something else. I took a peek out of curiosity; my favorite part is line 14:

# Run the "I'm too lazy to fix it myself all in one" script

QED.

If you like that, you'll love bash-zsh-insults.
