[Help]nss-myhostname and systemd are in conflict

Hello,
I'm trying to install arch from an existing linux 64bit installation and I have problems with installing base system(also 64bit).
I followed this guide:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … _Archlinux
and I successfully passed all steps until running the:
pacman -S base

In this step I'm stuck because I get the message:

looking for inter-conflicts...
:: nss-myhostname and systemd are in conflict. Remove systemd? [y/N]
and no matter if I answer Yes or No I get conflict errors:

error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: nss-myhostname and systemd are in conflict

I' ve tried to reformat the root partition and do all steps from the begining, but I get the same result.
Also, I did the same installation method before to a netbook(32bit though) which was successfull.
Any ideas, why this happens and how to solve it?

P.S
I've tried pacman -Sy,  pacman -Syy, but nothing changed.

Have you tried any of the solutions in today's other forum posts about nss-myhostname?

Re: [Help]nss-myhostname and systemd are in conflict

By searching with goolge, I found a thread from here, which was for an already installed system, so I didn't read it all because I thought that wasn't same case. I've tried the -Sy and -Syy which found there.
I haven't an installed system yet, I just ran the bootstrap script and chroot to /mnt partition. Also I haven't edit any file yet and just yesterday I've done the same on my netbook without to get any error in this step.
This merge of nss-myhostname with systemd happens today?

EDIT:
I excluded the nss-myhostname from the group base and now I can install it.
Is safe for the next steps of installation/configuration to don' t have this package?

The replacement happened the last days yes. It will only be fixed with the next install medium I reckon. Good you found a way around by excluding it. Since it is replaced by systemd you won't miss it in your next steps.
Just go ahead with the configuration according to the wiki and you should be fine.
