:: installing kodi-x11 (19.0-9) breaks dependency 'KODI-BIN' required by kodi

Steps to reproduce:
1. Have kodi (v18) installed
2. Upgrade kodi

Could you provide more details because this was tested multiple times

What is the exact command you executed to upgrade kodi-x11?
Comment by Keith Patton (kaipee) - Sunday, 07 March 2021, 23:09 GMT
sudo pacman -Syyu

Removing kodi and explicitly installing kodi-x11 works.

I don't understand because kodi-x11 now provides and replaces 'kodi' so it should have updated just fine, unless the mirror or database you were using still had the kodi package (18.9) there

The issue was apparent on both desktop and laptop which had kodi installed.

Are you running with --noconfirm or something? Or did it ask if you wanted to replace the package and you said no (default)?
