@hv15 aaah yes, thank you for the answer! Could you pin your answer or put it into the --help page?

Hi @TornaxO7, if you used tllocalmgr, then it will have installed the TeX packages as ArchLinux packages (using makepkg/pacman). Have you searched for these in the installed local packages, e.g. pacman -Qs texlive-local-...? You can then uninstall using pacman.

EDIT 1: typos...

Hi @AlphaJack, sorry for my late response. Upstream hasn't updated some variables to handle texlive 2020, I'll create patch of this in the next 24 hours. Thank you for reporting the issue :)

EDIT: Done, please let me know if there are any problems.

How can I delete an installed tex-package????

Is it normal to always get this kind of error when updating a CTAN package?

:: texlive-local-caption and texlive-core are in conflict. Remove texlive-core? [y/N] n
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: texlive-local-caption and texlive-core are in conflict (texlive-core>=2019.55507)


:: texlive-local-context-vim and texlive-core are in conflict. Remove texlive-core? [y/N] n
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: texlive-local-context-vim and texlive-core are in conflict (texlive-core>=2019.55652)

Using the latest 2020 texlive-core

BUG: package() in the PKGBUILD will fail if makepkg is executed in a directory the path of which contains a space! This is due to improper variable quoting.

Please consider fixing all instances of this in the PKGBUILD. Patch here:

@hv15 Thanks for the tip! I'll have to read up on asp and packaging overall but definitely sounds more robust, than my current approach, haha.

@Ondrian got it :), glad you were able to to sort it out. I only hope that when texlive-* gets updated, you don't have to go through dependency hell again. It would be nice if tllocalmgr would track Tex dependencies, but I don't think this is even supported through CTAN.

As an alternative, you could use asp to get the relevant texlive- PKGBUILDs and update these instead directly for your own use. I think this would be more robust and hopefully avoid dependency problems.

@hv15 I have a standard installation of texlive-most (and dependencies). I decided to update the texlive packages polyglossia and luavlna through tllocalmgr, since there have been some updates since the last update to texlive-most.

Then, I got the error Undefined control sequence. \str_lowercase:n -- apparently, this was because \str_lowercase:n was introduced in the beginning of January and therefore not in the current l3kernel package provided by texlive-most. After installing l3kernel through tllocalmgr this was solved, but many other packages were broken. In the end, I installed about 30 packages through tllocalmgr and finally I have a working latex installation including the up-to-date luavlna.

My point here is, updating a single texlive package can be dangerous, since the version dependencies are not handled at the package level, but (similarly to arch linux), everything in the up-to-date CTAN repository "should be" compatible.

And just to clarify - by the older releases I meant the tex packages provided by the "not so much up-to-date" current version of texlive-most.

@Ondrian ah, I understand, I think... what do you mean by older releases? Are these the Tex packages you installed?
