At first a pacman -Syu halted with
[2012-12-07 12:56] userdel: user dbus is currently used by process 202 [2012-12-07 12:56] groupdel: can't remove primary user for user "dbus"
Process 202 is
dbus 202 0.0 0.0 3092 1416 ? Ss 12:49 0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system --address=systemd: --nofork --nopidfile --systemd-activation
And it all halted with "Error executing command ... (something). It hang.
I then removed /var/lib/pacman/db.lck and installed the new dbus without fault. I then tried to update filesystem again but that too hangs at "Checking for file conflicts." Then I tried to reinstall to previous filesystem-2012-11-1 but that hangs too at the same point.
I have not tried to reboot yet. There are several packages to update;
pacman -Qu dnsutils 9.9.2-1 file-roller 3.6.2-3 filesystem 2012.11-1 gtk-update-icon-cache 2.24.13-1 gtk2 2.24.13-1 hwids 20121125-1 isl 0.10-1 linux 3.6.8-1 linux-headers 3.6.8-1 linux-lts 3.0.53-1 linux-lts-headers 3.0.53-1 talloc 2.0.7-1
But I don't dare yet. Pacman.log gives no further clues so what can I do?

Are you sure it "halted" or did it wait for you to choose "Y" to continue? I had a similar message but was able to let the pacman update continue without any problems. Also see my post at the thread https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 0#p1203120 at post #78
It hung until I quit the terminalapp, like 15 minutes.

Couldn't wait any longer, did a reboot and filesystem updated ok.
