The output of `pacman -S base' command is:
(50/50) checking keys in keyring
(50/50) checking package integrity
(50/50) loading package files
(50/50) checking for file conflicts
(50/50) checking available disk space
(  1/50) reinstalling filesystem
error: extract: not overwriting dir with file /usr/lib64
error: problem occured while upgrading filesystem
error: could not commit transaction
error: failed to commit transaction (rransaction aborted)
Errors occured, no packages were upgraded.

I know that that the /usr/lib64 is a symlink only.

What to do?
