All Arch Linux packages have had there files in the /lib directory moved to
/usr/lib and now /lib is a symlink to usr/lib. When performing this update,
pacman will likely identify a conflict in the /lib directory. In the simplest
case, this is worked around by doing:
` pacman -Syu --ignore glibc
pacman -Su `
Never use `--force` during this update.
If either of this steps does not work (e.g. due to dependency version issues,
file conflicts in /lib), refer to this [guide] for more detailed instructions
on performing this upgrade.
