[SOLVED] Evolution update error - file already exists in filesystem

Hello, I can not update Evolution (including Data-Server). The error message says: "FILENAME exists on filesystem". So I removed Evolution and tried to reinstall it, but that also doesn't work. Now, I can not install Evolution anymore.

Please see the Pacman error: https://gist.github.com/BuZZ-dEE/9eee233b57366b5eb270

How can I fix it?

Re: [SOLVED] Evolution update error - file already exists in filesystem

Hi, welcome to the Arch Linux forums!

Have you read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … 9.22_error?

In particular, you can run e.g.

pacman -Qo /etc/xdg/autostart/evolution-alarm-notify.desktop

to see whether the files are owned by any other package.

What command did you run to upgrade the system? Also what command for uninstalling evolution? Did you run `make install` at some point? (Note: usually it is safe to --force install the package, but it's also good to find the reason for the issue).

Re: [SOLVED] Evolution update error - file already exists in filesystem

Hi, I get for that commad.

pacman -Qo /etc/xdg/autostart/evolution-alarm-notify.desktop
Fehler: Kein Paket besitzt /etc/xdg/autostart/evolution-alarm-notify.desktop

No package owns the file.

I used the GUI tool Pamac and also tried:

sudo pacman -Syyu

I removed the packages with:

sudo pacman -R PACKAGE_NAMES

Thank you.

sudo pacman -S --force PACKAGE_NAMES

helped to install Evolution again.

Might be that it has run a partial upgrade at some point, but this is without any reliable source...

But glad you solved it! Don't forget to modify your first post and prepend '[SOLVED]' to your title!
