[SOLVED]I can't downgrade the entire system

I'm trying to downgrade the entire system  by changing the

/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

to only contain

 Server = https://archive.archlinux.org/repos/2021/10/01/$repo/os/$arch 

and then

 sudo pacman -Syyuu

This is the error that I get: https://pastebin.com/FQR0kDUG

In the end, it says no packages were upgraded (downgraded).

I even tried to pacman -R cheese
but I still get the error.

You need to remove webkit2gtk-4.1 and libcheese (not cheese).  You can (re)install webkit2gtk and cheese again after the downgrade if needed.

Thank you for the suggestion.
I tried this with

sudo pacman -Rdd webkit2gtk
error: target not found: webkit2gtk 

EDIT:
I removed webkit2gtk-4.1 successfully. not webkit2gtk. Now I don't get those errors anymore.

I am now left with these errors:

 228/228) checking for file conflicts                                   [########################################] 100%
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/bin/cvt exists in both 'xorg-server' and 'libxcvt'
/usr/share/man/man1/cvt.1.gz exists in both 'xorg-server' and 'libxcvt'
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

any suggestions here?
already tried to delete them

ls /usr/bin/cvt
ls: cannot access '/usr/bin/cvt': No such file or directory

ls /usr/share/man/man1/cvt.1.gz
ls: cannot access '/usr/share/man/man1/cvt.1.gz': No such file or directory

Re: [SOLVED]I can't downgrade the entire system

Then remove the one that you didn't have installed a month ago when they conflicted (I'd guess libxcvt).

Deleting *files* is not relevant here.  You are downgrading current packages to an earlier state, but you currently have co-installed packages that could not have formerly been co-installed due to a conflict.  There are not conflicting files *currently* on your system, but the same files are provided by old versions of two packages you have currently installed.  One of those must have been installed recently.
