After installing core from ISO one of the first normal tasks is `pacman -Syu`
This fails due to the glibc upgrade that has occured.

Attempting to upgrade glibc by itself with
pacman -U<arch>.pkg.tar.xz

fails with:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
glibc: /usr/bin/tzselect exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/sbin/zdump exists in filesystem
glibc: /usr/sbin/zic exists in filesystem

This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't fix
Additional comments about closing:  My time machine is broken -- unable to travel back in time to fix this one. core ISOs are no longer supported.

which is why there is a blog post about it

not like it will matter that much longer... coreiso is going to be removed
