Reason for closing:  Won't fix
Additional comments about closing:  Allan's fault. (pacman cannot handle such updates)

This is more or less a pacman problem. Try this:

pacman -R rkhunter
pacman -S rkhunter (hopefully without errors this time; otherwise check if they belong to anything (pacman -Qo) and remove them)
rkhunter --update
