[SOLVED] removing pygobject-devel breaks dependency

I am trying to do a system upgrade.

sudo pacman -Syyu

tells me

Replace pygobject-devel with extra/python-gobject? [Y/n]

If I click through however, I get

resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing pygobject-devel breaks dependency 'pygobject-devel=3.36.1' required by python2-gobject

And python2-gobject is in turn required by ibus, so I'm reluctant to do some cascade removal.

Re: [SOLVED] removing pygobject-devel breaks dependency

What is the output of `pacman -Si python2-gobject`?  Why are you using `pacman -Syyu` with the double y?

I believe it has been resolved: the upgrade went through just now. My guess is some other packages needed to be built. For completeness:

Habit and convenience. I did once, and now I simply search back through my history for the double 'y'.

Please consider breaking that habit that places additional load on the mirror server and can cause a partial update.
Edit:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/62995 for ibus having a hard dependency on python2.
