Details

Description:
/etc/dconf is not owned by any package, thus not created on my machine(and on many other machines, I believe).
The new database update hook runs dconf update without checking its existence, causing the following error:
error: Error opening directory “/etc/dconf/db”: No such file or directory

Additional info:
* package version(s)
0.32.0-2
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
$ pacman -Qo /etc/dconf
error: No package owns /etc/dconf
$ sudo dconf update
error: Error opening directory “/etc/dconf/db”: No such file or directory
This task depends upon

I am also receiving this error.

Same issue here except I do have dconf installed. I manually added /dconf/db folder and ran dconf update, no error was reported.
The install script needs to also check if /etc/dconf/db exists before updating.
