linux-lts: files exist in system [SOLVED]

can't update due to following error messages (i've done nothing funky with my kernels lately):
linux-lts: /boot/vmlinuz-linux-lts exists in filesystem
linux-lts: /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-4.19-lts/version exists in filesystem
linux-lts: /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/60-linux-lts.hook exists in filesystem
linux-lts: /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/90-linux-lts.hook exists in filesystem

Any suggestions?

This is the fix:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … )%22_error

Ofc this does not answer how this happened. I would at least check if there are any other issues:

pacman -Qkk

Re: linux-lts: files exist in system [SOLVED]

Tks!  I ended up manually deleting the offfending files.  (I'm sure the wrong, but the fastest, thing to do).  btw, Do you know how you get this type of error in your pacman -Qkk:
backup file: filesystem: /etc/fstab (Modification time mismatch)
backup file: filesystem: /etc/fstab (Size mismatch)
backup file: filesystem: /etc/group (Modification time mismatch)
backup file: filesystem: /etc/group (Size mismatch)
and is it anything to worry about ?
thanks

You configured fstab and group which changed the files contents.  It is expected for those files.

Re: linux-lts: files exist in system [SOLVED]

That's a great question to ask.
The simple answer is that it is expected, because you modified them and therefore differ from the installation. They are not errors, but hints in case anything is wrong with your packages.
I think it is expected for any file in /etc to be modified at some point, so no worries.

If you look around in some other threads you will see what a corrupted system looks like, example: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 1#p1864121

Please do not forget to mark the thread as solved by editing the title. smile
