Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

Getting:

:: installing perl (5.28.0-1.0) breaks dependency 'perl<5.27' required by imagemagick
:: installing perl (5.28.0-1.0) breaks dependency 'perl<5.27' required by net-snmp
:: installing perl (5.28.0-1.0) breaks dependency 'perl<5.27' required by perl-net-ssleay
:: installing perl (5.28.0-1.0) breaks dependency 'perl<5.27' required by perl-xml-parser

So, parts of Perl (namely Perl itself) are rebuilt and where pushed to stable, but not all
Perl modules and not all packages depending on Perl (because many time those
dependencies are not in the package it seems).

I'm doing a:

IgnorePkg = perl

for now to keep the rest of my systems updateable.

Re: Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

I had a similar error due to perl-xml-libxml not even being in testing when the newer perl was there, and that had an exact dependency on the older perl.  But the only reason I had that installed was as a dependency of an AUR project.  It seemed to take a week, but the updated perl-xml-libxml came by eventually.

Of your packages, I have perl-net-ssleay (which turns out to only be a dependency of the same AUR project, once I track up the dependencies) and imagemagick (which no longer seems to depend on perl).  I'm switched in to the testing repos, so I don't have to wait for anything to be pushed to stable, just have my own set of problems to encounter on occasion (although this month with this and glibc troubles hitting stable, I've actually done better).

Re: Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

Still getting warnings about old perl modules with pacman -Syu --ignore perl
Does glib-perl need ignoring as well ? Hope my system is still ok.
Silly question, but,  why can't these updates be held back until everything is ready ?

Re: Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

Is glib-perl the only thing in that /usr/lib/perl5.28 folder?  If so, then there should be nothing else affected, but unfortunately my perl is rather rusty and I can't guess how widely used that is, but it could potentially affect a lot of programs I'd guess.

I have also been receiving a perl error since I cleaned up what I thought was a very old folder in my home folder, but I've not yet been able to find where it's being invoked from.  Nothing important to me has broken though so I'm not too worried.

We've had a small flurry of these issues recently it seems to me, although I'm probably getting more exposure using the testing repositories.  I'm not sure why we can't test the dependency tree more fully when moving from testing to release, and I'm not sure why testing doesn't include more of the packages in arch64 - perhaps more packages are failing to build than we were aware of, but some of the packages I'm aware of do simple exports to /usr/lib, so I doubt that can be it.

Re: Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

At least the official packages libproxy & cups are also failing after that perl upgrade.
Since I had to reinstall two old laptops today, I temporarily locked them to the 2018/08/17 repo, which still has the previous perl version.

Re: Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

Can you provide the error message when you try to perform your upgrade.  I'm using the testing repos, and seem to have no problem with perl, but using pacman -Si to investigate packages, I can't see how cups is directly depending on perl.  It does have an optional dependency on xdg-utils, which has optional dependency on some perl-* packages, which eventually resolve down to perl itself at some point though.

I'm considering writing a quick and dirty python script to scan the repos and check for missing dependencies, so I'm interested in how to spot a problem like this programmatically.  I'd expect the error to report the actual package that hit the conflict, rather than something way up the dependency tree.

Ah, okay, that doesnt stop you installing anything, but would stop you using libproxy from perl after installation.

Ah, I'd missed the dependency in imagemagick which cups explicitly depends on.

My script to detect repo errors along these lines is coming along now, although it's turned out to not be nearly as quick to write as I thought, and significantly more dirty.  I currently need to rejig my data store of package and provides lines, because it turns out some versions of openjdk provide concurrent but different versions of things like java-environment.  Since dependencies often depend on unversioned other provisions, I need to be able to search it with just the name, but I need the same name at different versions not to collide.  I'm currently thinking of moving to two data structures, one of names which resolves to a list of versions and a database of all the versioned names, such that when a package depends on specific versions of things, I'll need to test all the versions available.

What's interesting is that I think it's already shown a few holes in the x64 repos on the machine I'm developing it on, I think.

I'm not currently planning for it to be able to test for unused perl packages, like that warning about libproxy when you install things (I don't think it's related specifically to the gst-package-* packages you're installing).  I guess I'd need a specific test for each language (I'm aware offhand about perl and python directories like this), and it'd require me to install the packages to see what's in them, which would require admin privs.  That's probably better as a separate tool since the current code all runs under user privs just fine (although I recommend users run pacman -Sy before running it under the appropriate privs).

Re: Perl rebuild stuck in the middle

libproxy isn't used by anything I need so yeah, that's not a big concern (used by vlc apparently though, but I use mpv) smile

imagemagick on the other end blocked all printing related stuff and is required by many more packages.
So I went back and locked the mirror I'm using to an older state until it's all sorted out.
Those laptops are old enough not to require the cutting-edge versions =P

Thank you for working on it!
