This update also includes the usual Archlinux upstream fixes as of Mar. 10, 2016.

You can use Discover, Octopi or the command line for this update:

sudo pacman -Syyu

Official Manjaro forum thread: https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=32002.0;topicseen

Updated fine. Just wondering as didn’t ask for password when I clicked update?

Also where to give wishlist for Discover? As really wanting to see functions add to discover.
Like more than a progress bar. As use to be with Apper gave individual progress on each package with done.
Was way more informative and giving “Downloading Package 36 of 89” would really be helpful.

Just a wish as I said as generic progress bars are notoriously misleading not being linear to time.
Sat their for almost 5 mins before a little smudge of green showed on it. So wasn’t sure it was actually downloading.


I was not able to update using Discover or octopi, hence ran

sudo pacman -Syu

which revealed-

[jagdeesh@jld-lap-ntrr ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu [sudo] password for jagdeesh: :: Synchronizing package databases... netrunner is up to date core is up to date extra is up to date community is up to date multilib is up to date :: Starting full system upgrade... warning: dkms: local ( is newer than extra ( warning: ufw-extras: local (0.3.0.g2d8cf5b-1) is newer than community (0.3-1) resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: virtualbox-guest-utils: installing virtualbox-guest-dkms (5.0.14-4) breaks dependency 'virtualbox-guest-modules' [jagdeesh@jld-lap-ntrr ~]$

So I removed ‘virtualbox-guest-utils’ and then octopi smothly installed 104 updates of 375.30 MiB.
I am not a much advanced Linux user, hence want to ask - am I at any loss by removing virtualbox-guest-utils?
‘virtualbox-guest-iso’ is already installed on this system. The package descriptions don’t give full details by which a novice would be able to understand the differences in these two packages’ functions.
Should I have followed any other procedure to update? :-/

You should be fine, virtualbox-guest-modules was dropped and replaced by virtualbox-guest-dkms by upstream Manjaro.

The virtualbox-guest-utils package is when running Netrunner Rolling inside virtualbox (guest) on top of another OS (host).
The virtualbox-guest-iso package is used by another OS (guest) inside virtualbox on top of your Netrunner Install (host)

Thanks, this makes things more clear.
