Default Package upgrade 1.0.0-1 => 0.11.0-2 (qgis)

Yeah, that's what force does. It tells pacman "ignore the version
compare, this is an upgrade, damnit"

Force is usually used when an upgrade is non-obvious or something like
that, like an upgrade from 1_0q to 1_a3 or some-such.

So no, this is not a bug, but you might want to contact the community
maintainer and find out if force is really (still) needed on that
pacman-dev mailing list
