Same here on multiple systems. The pacman upgrade replaced libalpm.so
from .8 to .9, you'll probably need to run 'pacman-db-upgrade', then
rebuild/reinstall cower (another thread also mentioned package-query,
which backs yaourt). If you're using pacaur there's an update for that
as well which adds the prevent-as-root check to align with the new
pacman 4.2 restriction.
