hi.... for a while now, pacman -Syu never works.... it always gives the following
[root@HPMachine danny]# pacman -Syu :: Synchronising package databases... core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date :: Starting full system upgrade... there is nothing to do [root@HPMachine danny]#
but then when i do pacman -Syyu it finds programs that need upgrading.... this is all true even if i leave it over a month before I run -Syu.
any ideas? not massive problem, just annoying. Thanks
Arch Linux on 4 machines - all vnc'ed and samba'ed - Asus 1001px
- P4 2.8GHz, 1Gb ram, GeForce6200, 290Gb (media centre)(no keyboard or mouse)
- HP Pavilion G6 Dual core 2.2GHz, 4Gb ram, 750Gb
- Samsung Series 3, i5, 6g ram, 750gb
Could it also be a system clock issue? I'm just brainstorming and don't really know - but pacman checks whether the mirror's package database is "newer" than the local one, right? I suspect either mirror or local clock errors might lead to this.
Edit: thanks for the clarification below (no point in bumping the thread for this).
