Default Pacman update fails to commit transaction

I have my new system up and running and am delighted. However, when running packman -Syu to update, all appeared to be progressing well with all sorts of downloads happening but at the end the message says: Checking package integrity, checking for file conflicts, error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files).initscripts: /etc/profile.d/locale.sh exists in filesystem. Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

What do you suggest?

Thanks Pham,

Can you please tell me how I access this file. I typed in /etc to the command line but was told it is a directory (which I know). How can I go about deleting it?

Many thanks

if you use sudo: sudo rm /etc/profile.d/locale.sh

if not: rm /etc/profile.d/locale.sh

Your books are cool )

Might I suggest (to the OP) the IRC channels and the forum as places to go
to get help for things like this? No sense cluttering up the mailing list
with fairly irrelevant questions.

Default Pacman update fails to commit transaction

If you want to get almost instant reponds, you can visit IRC channel
#archlinux on freenode. There are many Arch geeks on that channel, who can
answer questions with any levels of difficulty but remember not to ask so
simple questions because some guys there are pretty unfriendly to newbie
questions. Anyway welcome on board. Arch is an overload of awesomeness )

There should be a mailing list for every question.

Even if everything is beautyful now, it can't harm to make a file called /etc/locale.conf and to add your local to this file.
