Issue updating Arch Linux on B3 (ca-certificates-utils)

Post by sakaki » 08 Apr 2017, 08:24

Hi,

if you are running Arch on your B3, you may have experienced an issue when attempting to update recently:

Code: Select all

[root@archb3 ~]# pacman -Syu
...
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
ca-certificates-utils: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
This is a known issue: a symlink which used to be generated post-install has been moved into the package proper. The fix, per this note, is straightforward:

Code: Select all

[root@archb3 ~]# pacman -Syuw                           # download packages
[root@archb3 ~]# rm /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt  # remove conflicting file
[root@archb3 ~]# pacman -Su                             # perform upgrade
Note that if you simply delete the symlink without first downloading the packages, you may be unable to download them subsequently, so the order above is important.

Best, sakaki
