Latest package upgrade took graphicsmagick from 1.3.18-6 to 1.3.19-2
After this upgrade, attempts to use imread function in Octave, give error:

octave:1> a=imread("foo.jpg");
error: imread: invalid image file: Magick++ exception: Magick: No decode delegate for this image format () reported by magick/constitute.c:1522 (ReadImage)
error: called from:
error: /usr/share/octave/3.6.4/m/image/imread.m at line 74, column 7

Downgrading the package back to 1.3.18-6 restores normal operation.

Additional info:
Octave version is 3.6.4-5

Steps to reproduce:
Same error occurs in new install of Arch on a separate machine
Same error when attempting to imread .png, .bmp
This task depends upon
