Python2-mutagen was updated to version 1.43.0-1 but unfortunately it is not possible to update it because it breaks dependency for nicotine+.

Additional info:
* package version(s):
* nicotine+ 1.4.1-3
* python2-mutagen 1.43.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
$ sudo pacman -S python2-mutagen

looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

Just came here to report the same thing. It seems nicotine+'s PKGBUILD was updated back in February to depend on `python2-mutagen`, but for some reason it's still looking for something that provides the old `mutagen` virtual package. pacman -Qi also reports "mutagen" as the dependency rather than python2-mutagen.

Since python2-mutagen was updated last night to move `mutagen` from its provides and replaces arrays, this now causes system upgrade to break unless python2-mutagen is added to `IgnorePkg` in /etc/pacman.conf.
