Really silly questions:
- Are you using any repos other than [core], [extra], [community] and
- Are you using any pacman wrappers?

I'm asking because pacman can't find anything to do with catalyst here
and I'm using all the above mentioned repos so I don't see how using the
official repos could cause that. If you are using other repos (or pacman
wrappers, that as far as I know are not supported) you should know what
you are doing so you how know how to deal with these kind of conflicts
and possible breakage that might happen.
