I cannot remember if upgrade requires the old style package name like
sync did, but if the above link does not work directly for you, you
may need to download the package, mv it to a name without the "-i686"
part, and try again. Can someone let me know if this step needs to be
done? I don't have pacman2 around to test anymore.
