hi @brisbin33, i get the following error when trying to upgrade to the latest version:

/usr/bin/pacman: unknown option »--color never«

pacman was upgraded to 5.1.0.

Thanks for letting me know, depends added.

Same error here (/usr/bin/downgrade: line 124: pacsort: command not found) after upgrading pacman to 5.1.0-1.

Running this script currently gives the following error: /usr/bin/downgrade: line 124: pacsort: command not found

Package should depend on 'pacman-contrib', as pacsort has been moved.

Thanks for the report JohnRobson. Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with downgrade. It's an error coming from pacman directly, and is likely caused by having an outage.

You can confirm this with

# pacman -U

IIRC installing from was some weird Yaourt thing that's not recommend. Please see for the correct way to install downgrade.

Could you replace the "A.R.M." mention to "A.L.A." in the description?

Thanks Xavion, good points all around. Can you open Issues on the GitHub repo for these two things?

Regarding my second suggestion, your implementation idea sounds good but would require a fair bit of work. I think it'd be easier for you to just list the dates alongside the packages in the 'downgrade' output. In fact, I think this should be done even if you do decide to create the second tool.
