error: extract: not overwriting dir with file /usr/lib64

which means  /usr/lib64 is a directory on your system??

try "pacman -Syu -ignore filesystem ; pacman -S filesystem"

otherwise read through all of the https://www.archlinux.org/news/ and check
the steps you need to do for every update you missed so far.
