[Solved] pacman doesn't work after updating to the new kernel

yesterday i updated my laptop and i found there was a new kernel: since i've installed it i cannot install anything else thanks to an error of pacman.

[root@linux davide]# pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
multilib is up to date
:: The following packages should be upgraded first :
    pacman
:: Do you want to cancel the current operation
:: and upgrade these packages now? [Y/n]

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

so i checked my pacman version but i found that is <4.1 as requested above:

[root@linux davide]#pacman -Q pacman
pacman 4.0.3-7

i also tried to reinstall pacman but i have the same error:

[root@linux davide]# pacman -S pacman
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: package-query: requires pacman<4.1

how can i solve this problem? thanks for the help

PS: at the time my kernel is:

[root@linux davide]# uname -r
3.8.5-1-ARCH

Do some searching...   this is entirely unrelated to the kernel.
