Archlinux FPC packages won't update
« on: November 29, 2017, 04:39:19 pm »
Wow the package of fpc 3.0.4 for arch was updated really fast. https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/fpc/
However if I try to update it will tell me it is already the newest version:

Code: Bash  [Select]
  1. $ sudo pacman -Syy fpc-src fpc
  2. :: Synchronizing package databases...
  3.  core                     137,8 KiB   811K/s 00:00 [######################] 100%
  4.  extra                   1772,5 KiB  1441K/s 00:01 [######################] 100%
  5.  community                  4,4 MiB  2,13M/s 00:02 [######################] 100%
  6.  multilib                 178,7 KiB  4,36M/s 00:00 [######################] 100%
  7. warning: fpc-src-3.0.2-2 is up to date -- reinstalling
  8. warning: fpc-3.0.2-1 is up to date -- reinstalling
  9. ...
  10.  
Does anyone have the same problem?

Maybe you can try to update your pacman mirrorlist up to date?

It seems that you're right! I didn't mention it because I thought it didn't matter but I'm using manjaro. I didn't know they have their own mirrors and the new package is not available there yet. Also the fpc-src package for arch is still at 3.0.2 so it's probably better to keep the 3.0.2 version for now.

Thank you for your help!

If you use stable repo, the delay is around a week from arch (testing needs volunteer and time). If you want the very same day as arch, use unstable repo (but your whole system would be unstable as well).
