Hello, Arch Linux users! Whenever I try to upgrade my Arch Linux desktop using "sudo pacman -Syyu" command from the Terminal., I am getting the following error message.

 there is nothing to do

I have been facing this error for a few days now. After searching on Arch linux forums, I have found this solution. Have you ever encountered with this error lately? The quick and dirty workaround to fix this issue is you need to run the following command:

$ sudo pacman -Syu

The above command will mostly fix the problem and update all your packages.

In case If it doesn't, run this command instead.

$ sudo pacman -Suu

The above command will update all packages, then downgrade all affected packages.

And then, do the full upgrade using command:

$ sudo pacman -Syyu

This time the full system upgrade went without any issues. Hope this helps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Help us to help you:

Have a Good day!!
