Are you invoking pacman in an unattended manner in a systemd timer?
If yes, you probably have another problem. I suppose you mean calling
`pacman -Sywu`. That puts your system into a potential partial upgrade
scenario and makes your local package versions desynced from from the
sync database contains.
If your goal is to download packages to cache, see the `checkupdates`
command from package community/pacman-contrib⁽¹⁾. `checkupdates -d` is
doing exactly what you want, but without leading to a partial upgrade.
