I did almost every day an update since I 'convert' this system from
parabolagnulinux to arch linux.
First this system was installed as arch linux, then it has ben
converted into parabolagnulinux, and finally it was reconverted back
into arch linux.

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

I tried this abowe and the first part is executed successfully, but
after that just can't to reinstall the filesystem package because of
the existence of the /usr/lib64/ directory.

As I tould abowe, I did update almost every day.

What to do next?
