Pacman won't update/upgrade database after install.

I use Dutch as my main language

Additional info:
* pacman 4.3.0-5

Steps to reproduce:
Just install pacman with pacman. When it's done it will try to execute "pacman-db-update" which should be pacman-db-upgrade
This task depends upon

pacman-4.2.0-6 in Arch fixes this too.

Maybe I'm wrong but there was a small glitch after that version. There IS 'pacman-db-upgrade' command. I think you can make a patch where when tkpacman needs to update pacman-db-upgrade, you need to use some kind of 'su' or 'gksu' to "force" to update the database...
