pacman --sync

 
Arch Linux package manager utility. More information: https://man.archlinux.org/man/pacman.8.
 
  • Install a new package:
     
    sudo pacman --sync {{package_name}}
     
  • Synchronize and update all packages (add --downloadonly to download the packages and not update them):
     
    sudo pacman --sync --refresh --sysupgrade
     
  • Update all packages and install a new one without prompting:
     
    sudo pacman --sync --refresh --sysupgrade --noconfirm {{package_name}}
     
  • Search the package database for a regular expression or keyword:
     
    pacman --sync --search "{{search_pattern}}"
     
  • Display information about a package:
     
    pacman --sync --info {{package_name}}
     
  • Overwrite conflicting files during a package update:
     
    sudo pacman --sync --refresh --sysupgrade --overwrite {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Synchronize and update all packages, but ignore a specific package (can be used more than once):
     
    sudo pacman --sync --refresh --sysupgrade --ignore {{package_name}}
     
  • Remove not installed packages and unused repositories from the cache (use two --clean flags to clean all packages):
     
    sudo pacman --sync --clean
