That’s not supported (means you wont get help for related issues) nor recommended, but if you have exactly 0 other packages on your system depending on netcdf, you can use the ArchLinuxArchive to downgrade.

But since the very popular ffmpeg package does depend on it for instance, I highly doubt you won’t have any such package. Donwgrading netcdf would break those.

Or, you might also downgrade the other packages, or rebuild them yourself against the older netcdf. Anyway, that will soon be quite a maintenance burden. That’s partly why it’s not recommended. ;)
