https://bbs.archlinux.org – Thank you Jelly It was a .part file. I was using aria2 to download prior to switching to the new pacman.conf. There was only one offending file. I would have thought that pacman would at least tell you which file was corrupted when it found one or even not recognize .part files as complete packages. Anyway, I deleted the .part file everything went smoothly.Here is the complete output of pacman -Syyu --debug... just for reference.debug: parseconfig: options pass debug: config: attempting to read file /etc/pacman.conf debug: config: finish section '(null)' debug: config: new section & (HowTos)
