» A potential issue with the upgrade on x86_64 is finding conflicting
files in /usr/lib64. All Arch Linux packages that had files in this
directory have been updated, so update these individually first. Any
AUR packages with files in this directory should be updated to install
them in /usr/lib. «
afaik there was a wiki page about this too
check what files you have in /usr/lib64/ and why. if they are from
packages remove those packages.
