nvidia-390xx removed from repository

I am 1/2 way installing Arch Linux and so I type in

sudo pacman -S nvidia-390xx-dkms

Installs successfully :-)  Next I type in

sudo pacman -S lib32-nvidia-390xx-utils

Not found. Well, that is odd.  Figure I must have the name wrong.

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -Ss nvidia-390xx

Nothing found... Wait...What? I just install nvidia-390xx-dkms  That cannot be right.

sudo pacman -Ss 390xx

Nothing found.  Well, my repository must be bad. Time to change repos.  WRONG!  Changing repo does not resolve this.

Revisit the Wiki and it tells me it is now an AUR package.  WTF?!

sudo pacman -Ss nvidia-

Shows ONLY 440.xxx is now available on the repository.  440.64-5 to be exact at the time of this posting.

Well, that sucks.  So what am I to do? Uninstall and re-install or can I use 1/2 my install via the AUR?

My timing must really suck to catch it 1/2 through the change. lol

To answer my own question.  YES, you can install 1/2 from the repository and 1/2 from AUR.

That said I did decide to use the AUR to update since it seems to be a minor point version above. Uncertain if that is because there was an actual update or if the version reflected just the change from repo to AUR. Either way it all worked.
