@mike very cool tip! That might solve the problem I have where some computers have flatpak that need separate updating and I keep forgetting.
@mike this is cursed But pacman does have a flag for that which leaves you in a much better state than answering everything with y lol. I do pacman -Syu --needed --noconfirm pretty often. When there are package conflicts and other issues like that, it does require manual intervention so you can fix whatever issues arise
@amolith I did think about going with the --noconfirm, but it chooses defaults. I haven't had any issues so far, but then again I hadn't had any issues with UbuntuDDE until the whole thing blew up, so there's that.
