[SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Hi,
I have jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless installed at the moment. The package jdk-openjdk is not installed.
I tried
sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -Syu jre-openjdk
sudo pacman -Syu jre-openjdk-headless

non of those succeeded. I always get the error:

looking for conflicting packages...
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: jre-openjdk-headless and jre-openjdk are in conflict

I guess I want to keep jre-openjdk on my system in the end, but how can I make this work? https://archlinux.org/news/incoming-cha … ervention/ only states "install it manually". But how?
Thanks for helping me out.

Here is what pacman -Qi tells me about those packages

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Thanks for posting the question. I'm in quite a similar situation, dependencies seem to be quite entangled and without an opinionated tool, I am not sure which one to keep.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

I just did this and it worked:

yay -Rdd jre-openjdk-headless

This removes the package WITHOUT checking for dependencies. It can be dangerous, so if it is not critical, please wait for a more informed opinion.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Since apparently nothing on your system depends on either (beyond themselves), remove both?

If you do need Java for whatever reason, then I suggest removing the non-headless variant before running 'pacman -Syu', since the version you have installed depends on the headless version.

Edit: out of interest, when's the last time you cleaned up your orphan packages?

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

It seems to me that there could be a typo in the front page Latest News official notice regarding the jdk/jre conflict. The emailed newsletter states that to resolve it, use

 sudo pacman -Sy jdk-openjdk 

- not the

 sudo pacman -Syu jdk-openjdk 

that is on the front page Latest News. -Sy works, -Syu did not for me.

Just do

You'll see

:: jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless are in conflict. Remove jre-openjdk-headless? [y/N]

and you can answer 'y' to remove jre-openjdk-headless. Then, if jre-openjdk was originally installed as a dependency for some other package, you can mark it as such by

# pacman -D --asdeps jre-openjdk

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Hi. They haven't had any conflicts before. What could be the reason? I need these packages to work with electronic keys in the "pfx" format. Here is what pacman -Qi tells me about those packages:
Name               : jre-openjdk
Version             : 21.u35-3
Required By     : jdk-openjdk  xdman
Optional For     : brltty  libbluray  libjpeg-turbo  libjxl  libreoffice-still

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

For me `sudo pacman -Syu jdk-openjdk` didn't work either;  `sudo pacman -Sy jdk-openjdk` did. Perhaps the advice on the frontpage could be amended?

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

For me the solution was to run this prior to the latest updates since I had some jre as well as jdk packages:

sudo pacman -Rs openjdk-doc jdk-openjdk

and then today with further conflicts, I did the following to install the jdk packages:

sudo pacman -Rs jre-openjdk jre-openjdk-headless icedtea-web

and then

sudo pacman -Syu jdk-openjdk

This allowed the update to proceed without error or conflict, and the system seems fine now.

With the latest packages now installed the pacman -Qi output is different to that quoted above:

$ pacman -Qi jdk-openjdk
Name            : jdk-openjdk
Version         : 21.u35-7
Description     : OpenJDK Java 21 development kit

...

Required By     : None
Optional For    : libbluray  libjpeg-turbo  libjxl  libreoffice-still  opencv  subversion
                  texlive-latexextra
Conflicts With  : jre-openjdk  jre-openjdk-headless

Also after this I could now install icedtea-web again with no package conflicts.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

I just came across this because the suggested `pacman -Syu jdk-openjdk` did not work (only -Sy did, like people have suggested).
Can https://archlinux.org/news/incoming-cha … ervention/ be edited to have this corrected?

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

I can confirm.

sudo pacman -Sy jre-openjdk

did the trick! Thanks all!
I guess, this thread can be closed.

@WorMzy: good idea, I should check my orphan packages in the near future. But as there as some packages relying on it [optional], I probably will keep it on this system.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Sorry I would have a question. If nothing conflicts on updating normally (pacman -Syu). Does this mean I do not need to take any action?

I have now installed these packages:

$ pacman -Qs | grep -E "jre|jdk"
local/jdk-openjdk 21.u35-7
local/jdk11-openjdk 11.0.21.u9-3
local/jre11-openjdk 11.0.21.u9-3
local/jre11-openjdk-headless 11.0.21.u9-3
local/jre17-openjdk 17.0.9.u8-2
local/jre17-openjdk-headless 17.0.9.u8-2

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

for me jdk-openjdk and jre-openjdk seems to be in conflict
I can install them individually with pacman -S but it seems like both of them cant work together.
Either one of them has to removed.

@gary8588: No conflict means no problem.

@gyrozepelli3589: yes, this is expected behavior. Did you read the news? https://archlinux.org/news/incoming-cha … ervention/ You have to choose what package to keep. I personally would recommend sticking with jdk-openjdk if it was already installed.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

I'm lost. According to

https://archlinux.org/news/incoming-cha … ervention/

"If you have both JDK and JRE installed you can manually install the JDK with
pacman -Syu jdk-openjdk and this removes the JRE related packages."

So I tried that :

# pacman -Syu jdk-openjdk
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: jdk-openjdk and jre-openjdk are in conflict

Then I tried setone's solution :

# pacman -S jre-openjdk
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: jre-openjdk and jdk-openjdk are in conflict. Remove jdk-openjdk? [y/N] y
:: jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless are in conflict. Remove jre-openjdk-headless? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing jdk-openjdk breaks dependency 'java-environment' required by ant
:: removing jdk-openjdk breaks dependency 'jdk21-openjdk=21.u35-3' required by openjdk-doc

I also tried what andheisus suggested :

# pacman -Sy jdk-openjdk 
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra                                         8.2 MiB   351 KiB/s 00:24 [----------------------------------------] 100%
 community is up to date
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: jdk-openjdk and jre-openjdk are in conflict. Remove jre-openjdk? [y/N] y
:: jdk-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless are in conflict. Remove jre-openjdk-headless? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing jdk-openjdk (21.u35-7) breaks dependency 'jdk21-openjdk=21.u35-3' required by openjdk-doc

None of the solutions removed one or both of the packages that are now in conflict. I could force removal of one or both, but it seems a bit rough. I do use java to compile a package (using ant) that I like to test under Arch, because I think it gives me an idea of if my software will run on the latest version of what's coming.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

ant requires java-environment, so you cannot remove jdk-openjdk, but must drop jre-* instead.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

I came across and did this as an option...

sudo pacman -Syu --ignore=jre-openjdk --ignore=jdk-openjdk --ignore=jre-openjdk-headless

Or just uninstall and reinstall the packages - and update until things get sorted

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Thanks, Seth. So from what you're saying I should :

# pacman -R jre-openjdk

Is that correct? I have minimal experience with manually removing packages under Arch, since pacman is very good and I've only rarely had to do things manually. I want to be sure before I go ahead with it. Can you confirm that the command I just posted is what I should do?

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

Things are "sorted", you'll have to face and resolve the conflict at some point (when updating the java packages)
You can uninstall all java packages, update and re-install the desired one(s).

@nilesOien, try "pacman -S jdk-openjdk openjdk-doc"

And everyone who at any point issued "pacman -Sy" (even if the update was then aborted) without an "u" has to do "pacman -Su" afterwards to not run into partial udpates.
Eg. setone's approch only works because of a previously failed "-Sy", otherwise the older local database wouldn't be aware of the conflict.

Re: [SOLVED]How to resolve jre-openjdk and jre-openjdk-headless conflicts?

@seth Thanks, pacman -Su; pacman -S jdk-openjdk openjdk-doc worked. I'll tend to avoid pacman -Sy in future to avoid partial updates.

So from what I understand from the news I only need jdk and the jre packages would be included with it.is that right?
