Historically, I have always recommended that unless you are switching mirrors there is no reason to use
-Syyu and that
-Syu is sufficient.
However, since any Manjaro system with pamac installed ships with this enabled to run weekly:
[Unit] Description=Generate mirrorlist Wants=network-online.target After=network-online.target [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/usr/bin/pacman-mirrors -f8
it seems like using
-Syu may not be a good recommendation on Manjaro because you never know when the user last had their mirrors changed. Given that, it seems like it would be more more prudent to always use
Am I missing something or thinking through this wrong?
