@ax34: removed replaces() and updated to pamac 8.0-beta5 (??) version.

An array of obsolete packages that are replaced by the package, e.g. wireshark-qt uses replaces=('wireshark'). When syncing, pacman will immediately replace an installed package upon encountering another package with the matching replaces in the repositories. If providing an alternate version of an already existing package or uploading to the AUR, use the conflicts and provides arrays, which are only evaluated when actually installing the conflicting package.

@FredBezies, then conflicts=('pamac') should be enough.

replaces=('something') will replace "something" package with current package even if i don't install current package.

I installed "pamac-aur" and now yay wants to replace it with "pamac-aur-git" though i don't want to install "pamac-aur-git".

Even after the release of pamac-aur-git 7.4.0.r24.g3bcb34d-1, I'm still having the issue that this package seems to be building, but then not installing. I don't see any open reports upstream. Is anyone else having this issue?

@ax34: in order to avoid conflicting binaries? :D

I still don't understand. Why "something-git" package should replace "something" package while "something" package is still actual and popular?

@ax34: a security I added for manjaro users. Antergos added its version of pamac in its own repository.

So this is why there is a replace() function added in PKGBUILD.

Yay tries to replace pamac-aur with this package because of replaces=('pamac') Why does this package replace pamac?

For example.

Edit-1 | Thanks @FredBezies. Mea culpa; I omitted checking upstream for the issue. I assumed it was something local on my machine.
