Bob rants about how silly pacman is 

pacman -Su
"Ah, so you want to upgrade the entire system? No updates!"

pacman -Syu
"There's a few packages that need updating, including pacman!"

pacman -Su
"I MUST UPGRADE ALL THE THINGS NOW!"

I'm sure there's some logic behind this, but I've yet to discover it 🤷‍♂️

For contrast, these commands do literally the same thing on other distros, and with less confusion over whether you have updates or not:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

sudo dnf update

That rant about pacman was brought to you by "Bob trying to build Glimpse on Windows with MSYS2"

I guess that'll teach me for giving Arch a wide berth for the well over a decade I've been doing Linux stuff for 😂
