@croyleje, yup totally fine so long as you only update to 2022, otherwise how the CTAN packages are installed will conflict with TL2021/2022.

@cphyc, thanks, updated!

I had the same issue and have no issue patching the files just wanted to know if I build and install the package locally will this cause an issue later down the road when package is updated.

With the recent update of texlive, the package is preventing the upgrade from happening with the following error:

$ sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronising package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 multilib is up to date

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing texlive-core (2022.63035-1) breaks dependency 'texlive-core<2022' required by tllocalmgr-git

This can be fixed with the following patch

@hv15 Ah, so it's just a case of a misleading error message?

Error: command install is not defined

should have probably been

No package "extdash" found

Thanks, problem solved!

hv15 commented on 2021-10-26 18:46 (UTC) (edited on 2021-10-26 18:47 (UTC) by hv15)

@gustaphe I pushed a fix for this; suffice it to say the 'extdash' sty is part of the 'ncctools' CTAN package. You can install it on ArchLinux through the 'texlive-latexextra' package.

Trying to install a package (extdash):

Initializing ...
Cannot open /var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/texlive-most-doc_20211026-1.pkgs!
-- Likely the package texlive-most-doc does not create the 'pkgs' file.
Use of uninitialized value in numeric lt (<) at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 234.
Argument "20211026-1" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at /usr/bin/tllocalmgr line 234.
Error: command install is not defined

I've seen this before, it looks like it's when some package has a version that's not just a number.

I don't know Perl.

@hv15 thanks! the fix works.

hv15 commented on 2021-08-12 08:16 (UTC)

@shackra what CTAN package were you trying to install/build?

hv15 commented on 2021-08-12 08:14 (UTC)

@hongy19, fixed!

getting this error

Looks good

thought that installing perl-json would solve it but is not the case
