[Resolved] Does yay have a dry-run option like -p of pacman.

I was using cower with some self written Bash scripts. And I've been manually updating packages with 'makepkg -sic' ever since cower died. But it just became too much. Against better judgement, I installed yay just now, to update AUR packages. Just the AUR packages with yay -Sua. But WTF is the dry-run switch / option? The -p switch / option that pacman has: pacman -Syyup.

You basically get what amounts to a dry run when being prompted which AUR packages you want to include and then Ctrl+Cing out. Which usecase do you envision where that isn't sufficient?

pacman -Syyup

Check the pacman manpage, read up what the second "y" does, then stop using it unless you *actually* mean to.
This also sets you up for a partial update w/ the next "pacman -S foo", so don't do this at all!
Use checkupdates.

Afaict "yay -Qu" will query updates, but I don't actually know what it does.

From the man page :

Passing two --refresh or -y flags will force a refresh of all package databases, even if they appear to be up-to-date.

Enlighten me. Because I do not see the issue with the partial updates.

Re: [Resolved] Does yay have a dry-run option like -p of pacman.

From the man page :

Very good. The nasty implications of that are that you put undue stress on the mirror and risk to corrupt your local database.
It's only to fix existing database problems.

Unfortunately I only know that other quote from Buck Rogers (it's been ages since I saw it)

Thanks for explaining. Will mark the thread as resolved.

If you're not from the USE, but from the USA you can rewatch it here : https://www.amazon.com/Buck-Rogers-25th … B0017106M8. I'm battling it out with Amazon now to stream  it to the USE. And you know what, they are sill responding to my emails. Bidi bidi bidi bidi.
