the upgrade of ca-certificates-utils to version 20170307 requires manual intervention because a symlink which used to be generated in the post-install script has now been moved into the package.
As deleting the symlink may leave you unable to download packages, perform this upgrade in the steps described below.
Attempt a standard system upgrade:
$ sudo pacman -Syu
If your mirror has synchronised since this announcement was published, you will receive ca-certificates-utils version 20170307, but then get the following error during installation:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) ca-certificates-utils: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
Only proceed to step 2 if you get this error. If you do not get the error, just proceed with the normal upgrade until your mirror has synced and this error comes up.
Remove the conflicting file:
$ sudo rm /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
Perform the upgrade again using the packages already downloaded in Step 1:
$ sudo pacman -Su
