Today I have found the following packages on my system that were not on :Extra:

Since I also have installed:

I wondered the forums and found this:

As you can see on that link, pacman failed to remove policykit. However, issuing pacman -Qs policykit just provides:

local/polkit-gnome 0.96-1
PolicyKit integration for the GNOME desktop
local/polkit-qt 0.95.1-1
A library that allows developers to access PolicyKit API with a nice
Qt-style API

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
None that I can think of should be relevant. Feel free to tell how wrong I am.

Steps to reproduce:
See description.

I think you misunderstood. Thtis is not related to pacman. I would just suggest that future versions of polkit should have a replaces=('policykit') in their PKGBUILD.
