I just built a Arch 0.6 system on my laptop.
After it was all booting happily, I updated the package list, then decided to update the system.
It updated pacman first, which went well.
Then I had to run the command again, and this time it downloaded a whole bunch of updates, but failed when it did a conflict check.
Could anyone assist? Here is the error:

I shall update them one by one and see which package is causing it..
Still I prob won't know how to fix it when I find it!
