[SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

This may be basic but I've never encountered it before.
I just updated pacman and I now get this error:

package-query: error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
warning: config file /etc/pacman.conf, line 19: directive 'SyncFirst' in section 'options' not recognized.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

You need to use the new "pacman.conf" file, which is under the name "pacman.conf.pacnew".

# mv /etc/pacman.conf /etc/pacman.conf.backup # just in case
# mv /etc/pacman.conf.pacnew /etc/pacman.conf

Generally you have to pay a little more attention to pacman warnings when you upgrade.

Oh, and don't forget to enable multilib in the new configuration file.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

You need to compare the two and merge your customisations with the changes to the default version. Otherwise, the changes you've made will be lost.

Please see the wiki for information on how to handle *.pacsave, *.pacnew etc.

Just moving the new version into place is not usually the right thing to do.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

You're right, merging is the right thing to do in theses cases.

I was just trying to help for this specific case, where the average user has usually only changed the "multilib" line in the conf file. But yeah, it's good you mentioned the  right general approach, I should have done the same. wink

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

How can you have run Arch for the last three years without understanding pacnews?

They will only be present *after* you successfully upgrade a package...

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

Yes, you can. You are just not taking responsibility for installing unsupported packages.

That is your problem, not ours...

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

I don't have a pacman.conf.pacnew

Is there a work-around for this?

Thank you,

You need to rebuild package-query  (or probably use package-query-git until it is updated).

Uninstall package-query, then update...   It is a AUR package is it is your responsibility to handle its updates.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

Update went smoothly once I removed pacdep (pacman warned me of the problem).

@Allan there is nothing wrong with your syntax, compared to some I have read on forums...

Yes, of course you have pacman < 4.1 and it won't let you upgrade since package-query requires it. Pacman's output is crystal clear.

In other words, a safe upgrade and compliance with package-query dependencies are mutually exclusive. You either remove package-query and other conflicting packages before upgrading pacman, thus you can upgrade the rest of your system; or stay with package-query/yaourt/etc which are AUR scripts that may or may not be updated soon in order to work with newest pacman.

Remember AUR packages are unofficial and they are likely to break stuff if little system maintenance and involvement is shown from your part, though I wouldn't classify this as a real breakage. package-query simply is not in perfect timing with pacman releases, and that's all you ought to know.

Just one question: how did you do the update? Was it a

pacman -Syuf

or whatever parameter combination containing the enforcing -f ? I guess you did so.

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

I get the following error when trying to upgrade pacman:

:: The following packages should be upgraded first :
    pacman
:: Do you want to cancel the current operation
:: and upgrade these packages now? [Y/n] Y

resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: package-query: requires pacman<4.1
:: pacman-color: requires pacman<4.1

Will this be "fixed" by just waiting until package-query ond pacman-color is updated, or do I need to do something myself?

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

First, pacman 4.1 has color support, so you probably don't need pacman-color anymore. Second, the question regarding package-query has been answered several times in various threads. Please use the search function to see if someone has answered your issue before you create a new thread that may be superfluous.

All the best,

Re: [SOLVED] Upgrading to Pacman 4.1 - various issues

try sudo pacman -R yaourt
sudo pacman -R package-query
then sudo pacman -Syyu
then fix your /etc/pacman.conf file as suggested above  then put yaourt back in (if you still want it).
