[solved] 11.02.2019 Error "pacman -Syu"

Hello Developer,

my Archlinux32 (LXQt, Lightdm) will not start after "pacman -Syu"  at 11.02.2019
I get any qt5 package.-

"pacman -Syu" at 10.02.2019 worked without problems.

Now I'm back to a image from 28.01.2019.

When should try I the next "pacman -Syu"?

Can you check which mirror you are using in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist?
Maybe switching that one helps.

Also, do a pacman -Syyu instead of pacman -Syu to force the update
of seemingly up-to-date database files..

I cannot reproduce this using my mirror http://archlinux32.andreasbaumann.cc,
just did a full update on stable.

Thank you.

It may be worth doing a second -y when you've changed your mirrorlist file, but I personally have never found the need.

I guess as long as you pacman -Syu appears to be downloading new lists periodically it's all okay.  My own system seems to think everything's been up to date for the past month, so I ran my mirrorlist.pacnew through rankmirrors and updated my mirrorlist.  That got me a whole raft of updated packages, so I assume the old server that happened to be on top of my mirrorlist had stopped updating.

I still didn't need to do a -yy to get new package lists.

I would guess that you using -yy has not had anything to do with your improved experience, just that whatever problem you had has happened to have been fixed since your last -Syu.
