Last update gives here a message.

WARNING: '/usr/lib/perl5/5.26' contains data from at least 1 packages which will NOT be used by the installed perl interpreter. -> Run the following command to get a list of affected packages: pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/5.26'

pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/5.26'

The result was perl-linux-desktopfiles

Just wanted you to be aware of this.
