Octopi says I have 2 packages installed which are newer than the ones that pacman will update.

The packages are:

  • python2-pyparsing 2.10-1 (installed version is 2.2.0-1)
  • python3-pyparsing 2.10-1 (installed version is 2.2.0-1)

Should I proceed with the update?

Hi Nuno,

Yes it should be safe to upgrade. Pacman will complain but will keep the new version until we fix this issue:

However there still seems to be something wrong here, can you provide the output of pacman -Ss pyparsing?

Good, this is now already and the warnings will go once your mirror synchronizes with the main server.
