Anyway as you can see libpoppler-qt4.so.3 is gone

[jelle at P8][~/server/Devel2]%pkgfile libpoppler-qt4.so.3
And there is .so.4 now
[jelle at P8][~/server/Devel2]%pkgfile libpoppler-qt4.so.4

So your application needs to rebuild so it knows about .so.4 instead of
.so.3 ( in short )

Now did you by any chance compile the package from source with using AUR?
Try to run the following command on the conflicting files

pacman -Qo  /usr/share/conflicting_files
