How do I update PyCharm to its latest version?

It's been two weeks since the release of PyCharm 2018.1.1 but I do not find the update in pamac. I would like to update to the latest version.



I did not think Manjaro would hold back updates for more than two weeks. What is going on? Kindly advise.

This package is managed upsteam in Arch.

$ pacman -Qi pycharm-community-edition
Name            : pycharm-community-edition
Version         : 2018.1-1
Description     : Python IDE for Professional Developers
Architecture    : x86_64
Packager        : Maxime Gauduin <>
Build Date      : Fri 30 Mar 2018 05:40:41 AEDT

Not sure if there is an escalation process, but other users are probably waiting for it too.

Once in Arch stable it will follow the usual migration path through Manjaro unstable, testing and stable branches.

If it comes to the Arch community repo, it still contains the 2018.1-1 package. However, your installations asks to be launched with sudo privileges to perform auto-update. All you need is to enter /opt/your-pycharm-directory/bin (or wherever you installed PyCharm) and run sudo ./

Attention: for me it crashes on the Wayland session, so I change to X.
Attention#2: do not open your projects, as you may loose access to some files when logged as not a superuser. Just update and close.
