error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

I included all the output for completeness, but the relevant part (at the very end) is:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
python-entrypoints: /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/__pycache__/entrypoints.cpython-310.pyc exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

I'm pretty sure that I didn't accidentally install this file myself, because I've never run "pip" as root.  I know that I could probably get the update to work by doing "pacman -Syyu --overwrite", but that seems like a bad idea given that I don't know what the underlying problem is.  Does anybody have any ideas about what went wrong and what should be done to fix it?

Re: [solved] python-entrypoints: entrypoints.cpython-310.pyc exists...

You've previously loaded it as root, so the byte compiled file was created and cached. It's now part of the package, though, so you'll have to overwrite the old, untracked file. See the pacman wiki page.

How did you do?
What command did you use?

I solved this by renaming the offending/existing file with a .org extension and repeating the update.
Hope it helps.

Thanks!

Re: [solved] python-entrypoints: entrypoints.cpython-310.pyc exists...

I don't remember, probably "pacman -Syyu --overwrite".

IIRC, my concern was that I didn't want to overwrite any files in /usr without understanding why there was a conflict in the first place.  Scimmia explained that the conflict (probably) arose because the file in question was recently added to "python-entrypoints", but already existed on my machine due to having been generated and cached by python after I ran some code (as root) that imported the entrypoints module.  Knowing that, and knowing that *.pyc files can be regenerated from the corresponding *.py files anyways, I felt safe overwriting it.

On this topic, I don't really understand why python packages in the repositories contain *.pyc files at all.  But I checked a handful of packages and they all included *.pyc files, so there must be a reason.

Speed. If they aren't there, they have to be byte-compiled at runtime. If it's not run with root privileges, it then can't save the file, so it happens every time you start it.
