so....i slacked off updating my arch linux box, and now it's in dependency hell when i try and do a system update. awesome. I'm too lazy to care. Moving to arch from slackware was suppose to save me from doing full version updates.

@slacka I didn't know it. I was impressed that I read somewhere: ``Arch: there is no need to update the distribution, just install the updates and your operating system and software will be updated.''🤔


@yrabbit and no, it doesn't automatically update, though I would suppose it would be easy to schedule the package manager to run the system update command daily or whatever, but ....i don't and that's not turned on by default.
