Why is local version higher than of update mirror?

I am no noob on Linux but now I feel like one and I’m gonna ask like one:

One day I have found my local packages being of higher version than the
ones being stored on garuda mirrors.

Did I come from the future? Have I been hacked?
Has a rollback happened on the servers?
Why is it happening for so long?

garuda is up to date

I update once a week so this makes sense.
If it persists, I would like to see where the conversation
continued on the forum.

If it’s not pinned here in an unspecified
amount of time, I’m gonna search
and pin it here.

If it’s not there, consider this
topic the continuation of that discussion.

I’m marking your reply as
the solution if these messages
disappear with new updates.

I see what you mean: the GitLab issue explains what happened, but does not really provide a solution.

An easy way to resolve those messages is to just reinstall the packages.

sudo pacman -S garuda-settings-manager garuda-settings-manager-kcm kde-servicemenus-pdf-encrypt-decrypt performance-tweaks virt-manager-meta

You’re the reason the whole world panicked over the “Y2K Bug.” Programmers saving bits & bytes nearly wrecked the entire planet. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


That’s right :grimacing:

It’s not about saving bytes, you read that automatically, and it costs time, unnecessarily. :smiley:
