There’s nothing wrong with that, beside you did omit the output schard has requested. If you had posted it, you would have seen yourself, I guess …

Pacman developers are lazy and have not made a release in ages.  But then again, pacman is perfect, so there is little need for an update....

All the changes made since 2021 are not protected by copyright because those changes were actually just imported from pirated copies of close-source package managers made by hard-working developers.  There's currently a class action lawsuit in progress on this issue - if the other side wins, all archers will have to forfeit their entire supply of tacos to the wronged parties.

I thought the updates are exclusive to paying subscribers to Allans OnlyFans?

I am running a version of pacman where downloads are down by a separate user...   Money would maybe help get it released tongue
