[SOLVED] Pacman not updating packages

When I try to upgrade using

pacman -Syu

I get this:

Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

I tried googling up something but I can't find anything.
What should I do? Thanks smile

EDIT: Solved. Sorry for spamming the forum like this before trying with pacman man pages.
I just did

 pacman -Syu -f 

and it worked.

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman not updating packages

That might have solved that particular problem, but you may have more. Getting that amount of 'exists in filesystem' errors in one go suggests to me that your pacman database has been corrupted. Read this if you get more problems like this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ho … l_database

You should avoid using the -f flag, it could result in a broken system.
