Thanks! It's resolved.
I'm using 5.0.21-1-MANJARO. I cannot install kernel 5.1 nor 4.19:
The following packages will be installed: linux419 linux419-virtualbox-host-modules linux419-nvidia linux419-bbswitch Starting resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... :: installing nvidia-utils (1:430.26-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils=1:430.14' required by linux50-nvidia
The following packages will be installed: linux51 linux51-virtualbox-host-modules linux51-nvidia linux51-bbswitch Starting resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... :: installing nvidia-utils (1:430.26-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils=1:430.14' required by linux50-nvidia Done ...
I cannot perform system update:
Failed to prepare transaction could not satisfy dependencies: installing nvidia-utils (1:430.26-1) breaks dependency 'nvidia-utils=1:430.14' required by linux50-nvidia
Pamac message is too enigmatic - it should switch to supported (newer) kernel or inform the user about kernel upgrade requirement.
Manjaro Settings Manager tells "100% Done" when failed - that's misleading.
mhwd-tui asks for kernels but does nothing.
So no GUI tool can handle this case. I'm going to solve the issue manually.
Thanks a lot for all your efforts! Another (almost) smooth update for me on XFCE using TTY
Initially, I couldn't update because pacman complained about conflicting files because the folder /snap existed on my filesystem. Indeed, I installed the snapd package and the snap store following this guide. This involded creating a symlink from /var/lib/snapd/snap to /snap. This prevented the update to run. I just completely uninstalled snapd and remove this symlink and then the update went flawlessly.
You mention in the first post that gnome-software will provide snap compatibility and is now part of the XFCE edition. After the update, gnome-software is not installed. Should I install it manually to access the snap store?
Pamac 8 has some issues
1.Localization in Russian is incomplete
2.When I try to update AUR package"build" button does not work
Users above reported it helped them. Maybe you forgot to write something, but according to your message I can assume you didn't try to remove linux50 before performing update or installing linux51, which was the whole point of my post.
Well, yes. But I was unable to remove running kernel and unable install another one
Please bear in mind that removing current kernel (any touching the kernel by a regular user) is a risky and too complex operation. System updater didn't notified a regular user about necessity to remove (!) current kernel.
The process should be smooth as possible. If this is not possible, error messages should be understandable for a regular user. He/she should be able to follow the instructions.
In my case the solution was:
1. pacman -R nvidia-utils linux50-nvidia cuda lib32-nvidia-utils 2. install kernel 5.1 using Manjaro Settings Manager 3. pacman -S nvidia-utils linux51-nvidia cuda lib32-nvidia-utils 4. do update 5. remove old kernel
Definitely not so easy for a regular user.
Thanks. I had to do this as well.
Another thing... pamac (gui) had issues with downloading some packages. The transfer was broken at some point. Now it complains:
Who knows which package is corrupted?
Try to launch update from terminal
sudo pacman -Syu
Thank you, I know that. Just telling here that gui have some serious issues.
I also had issue with "waiting for another package manager to quit" (I had to remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck manually).
There is also an issue with progress bar, when pamac (gui) is downloading files in parallel - as an user you are not able to see the progress (progress bar and package names are flickering)
EDIT: These issues are related to the previous version of Pamac. I'll re-check them using the new one.
pacman -Syu went smoothly...
Can your confirm issue with AUR packages?
My AUR packages were updated in a batch, I haven't had to push a "Build" button. I'll check this.
After recent stable update pamac-qt is not running properly though I can install packages pretty easily. Two problems,at this moment,I'm facing is- (1) can't get to see details of any packages & (2) can't update through the ui.
Btw, I'm using kernel- 5.1.x. Pamac-qt was running pretty well with occasional crashes before this update. Is there any immediate workaround?
Error reading (roll-in) file QML: file:///home/user/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.notifications/contents/ui/main.qml:29:1: module "org.kde.plasma.private.notifications" version 1.0 is not installed
What to do about it?
Also icon of show desktop widget is not displayed properly
I reinstalled knotifications package and everything is ok now.
Was this a thing in 5.16.1?
Something is wrong with notification system
Actually, this is first time I see this message after today update.
Probably this is because they rewritten notification system on Plasma
yup.Please file bug report here https://bugs.kde.org/
You need to make account first
pacman-mirrors --country United_Kingdom
(replacing United_Kingdom with your own country)
will probably help with this.
Or it is the other way round!?
