What is going on? Why is unrecognized? (I have already deleted those files and downloaded them again)

Re: messy pacman

What do you have in your /etc/pacman.conf? On a related note (kind of), do some searching. The conflict with package-query is extremely well-documented and has been discussed to death already on the BBS.

All the best,

This is also probably unrelated, but why on earth do you have SigLevel = Never on all your repos?

As for the actual issue, try pacman -Syyu to force the dbs to update.

You mean like Arch with neither parachute nor plane?
