With Today's autofs upgrade:

[2019-10-28T12:37:56-0600] [ALPM] warning: /etc/autofs/auto.master saved as /etc/autofs/auto.master.pacsave
[2019-10-28T12:37:56-0600] [ALPM] upgraded autofs (5.1.4-3 -> 5.1.6-1)

autofs.service and auto.master files are no longer provided by the autofs package. The auto.master could be recovered from the auto.master.pacsave left by the upgrade. However by losing the autofs.service file there's no way to start the autofs service. Actually the soft link left:

/etc/systemd/system/ -> /usr/lib/systemd/system/autofs.service

Is broken, since there's no file on /usr/lib/systemd/system:

% find /usr/lib/systemd/ -name '*autofs*'
This task depends upon
