Hello everyone, it’s been a while not posting about Manjaro on this website. I just tried to boot my Manjaro desktop and willing to update it. But unfortunately, the update process stopped prematurely. I got the following error when executing the update/upgrade command. It says python-nautilus and python2-nautilus are in conflict and the upgrade process totally stopped.
[dhani@dhani-manjaro ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu [sudo] password for dhani: :: Synchronizing package databases... core is up to date extra is up to date community 4,3 MiB 191K/s 00:23 [######################] 100% multilib is up to date :: Starting full system upgrade... warning: chrome-gnome-shell: local (20170421-1) is newer than extra (9-1) resolving dependencies... looking for conflicting packages... error: unresolvable package conflicts detected error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies) :: python-nautilus and python2-nautilus are in conflict
I tried many times but seems still not working though.
After Googling here and there, finally, I found the solution for this issue. If you have this kind of error, you can try the following solutions:
First, let’s remove the Nautilus admin package
sudo pacman -Rs nautilus-admin
[dhani@dhani-manjaro ~]$ sudo pacman -Rs nautilus-admin [sudo] password for dhani: checking dependencies... Packages (3) python2-gobject-3.26.1-1 python2-nautilus-1.1-4 nautilus-admin-1.1.1-1 Total Removed Size: 1,27 MiB :: Do you want to remove these packages? [Y/n]
Now let’s try to update and upgrade
sudo pacman -Syu
Now my Manjaro is updating. If you have the same problem, you can follow my tutorial above to solve the conflict problem for python2-nautilus package.
