When trying to install grub-common and grub-bios pacman refuses to do that because grub2.bios and grub2-common are installed and their files conflicts with the grub-common and grub-bios ones.
The files are owned by the old packages (which were installed with pacman and are not present inthe repo anymore).
This is an example:

pacman -Qo /boot/grub/grub.cfg
/boot/grub/grub.cfg รจ contenuto in grub2-common 1:2.00rc1-1

These are the packages versions:
grub-common 2.00-1
grub-bios 2.00-1
grub2.bios 1:2.00rc1-1
grub2-common 1:2.00rc1-1
This task depends upon
