Failed to update nvidia and nvidia-utils

Additional info:
original nvidia version: nvidia 387.34-21
upgrading to nvidia 390.25-2
original nvidia-utils version: nvidia-utils 387.34-5

Steps to reproduce:
sudo pacman -Syu

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
/usr/share/licenses/nvidia/LICENSE exists in both 'nvidia-utils' and 'nvidia'

pacman -Qo /usr/share/licenses/nvidia/LICENSE
/usr/share/licenses/nvidia/LICENSE is owned by nvidia-utils 387.34-5

Steps taken to resolve:
No forum post or announcement appears to exist, and although I am slightly behind in versions I believe this is a bug.
This task depends upon

Can confirm. nvidia-utils 390.25-1 here, and there's no corresponding -2 in the repos (yet).
