pacman 4 logic error - what part of 'no' doesn't it understand?
I have found a logic error in pacman (I think). I don't like replacing both
the kernel and kernel-lts in the same 'pacman -Syu' call. So I answered 'no'
when prompted to 'Replace kernel26-lts with core/linux-lts? [Y/n] n'. However,
then pacman fails to install anything because 'linux-lts and kernel26-lts are in
When I answered 'n' to Replace kernel26-lts, I expected pacman to ignore
upgrading that package (and the others I said no to) but proceed forward and
install the remaining updates. Should I file this as a bug? The full output is
