spyder crashes on startup because jupyter-client was upgraded beyond the maximum version spyder expects (version 8.0.1 of jupyter client does not satisfy spyder's 'jupyter-client<8,>=7.4.9' dependency).

Additional info:
* package version(s)
5.4.1-1 (Arch community repo package)

* config and/or log files etc.
