Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Error caused by alpm-hook instance choking on invalid input, not by pacman itself.

Looks like that is from the systemd-tmpfiles.hook.

Yep, you're right
# /usr/share/libalpm/scripts/systemd-hook tmpfiles
[/etc/tmpfiles.d/redis.conf:1] Unknown modifiers in command 'root:'

Thank you for your help
