I got the warning in the title from pacman during a routine system upgrade. It looks like the package’s versioning scheme is incompatible with pacman’s version number parsing and ordering?

Steps to reproduce:

* Install version 1.03ii-5. If you have it in the cache: sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/perl-sgmls-1.03ii-5-any.pkg.tar.xz
* sudo pacman -Syu
This task depends upon
