this happens over and over and over again.  it wants to upgrade 'file'  i tried deleting the cache, that didn't seem to help.  i didn't see anything bad in the log file either.  any clues?

Re: pacman insists on upgrading file over and over again

perhaps your pacman is not the most current version? this can cause problems on occasion.

Re: pacman insists on upgrading file over and over again

with the help of judd i was able to fix this issue, it was an old file directory in the pacman directories.
