Using Arch Linux and getting the following error in pacman?
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
filesystem: /etc/mtab exists in filesystem
initscripts: /etc/profile.d/locale.sh exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
There’s actually two problems here.
First, delete /etc/profile.d/local.sh. See here.
The second issue can be resolved by passing ‘–force’ into pacman. See here.
