Warning about unknown type of icon during update-appstream hook

Hello!

Today I saw this warning during updating with `pacman -Syyu`:

[2021-12-03T21:35:47+0100] [ALPM] running '90-update-appstream-cache.hook'...
[2021-12-03T21:35:48+0100] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET]

I have no clue what is going wrong. Any idea?

If searched around and found Nift, a website generator. And one of the files says something about skipping an icon check. I'm using Flatpak for this packages:

I wonder if one of these includes something from Nift?
Thank you

Re: Warning about unknown type of icon during update-appstream hook

Weird neutral
Maybe I report it to Flatpak upstream?

Re: Warning about unknown type of icon during update-appstream hook

Flathub issue: https://github.com/flatpak/flatpak/issues/4642
Upstream issue: https://github.com/nifty-site-manager/n … k/issues/1

Seem to be caused by invalid metadata within one Flatpak and it doesn't matter if you've installed it or not.
