Uhm actually I would place -Ss before -U, because it's almost required for -S
1) search with -Ss
2) install with -S
3) upgrade with -Syu
4) install AUR package with makepkg -si (or makepkg -s + pacman -U but
I dont use that much)

Let's remove all other operations and options which are completely useless :)
