Repeat of :
> I have jre-openjdk and java-openfjx installed on my system. An update is now impossible without manual intervention, since jre-openjdk was updated to version 18. It would be nice to have either synchronized updates or have at least jre17-openjdk as dependency added at the same time, to avoid manual interventions.

Additional info:
> sudo pacman -Syu

I have the exact same issue
have you fixed it?

@A404M just hold `java-openjfx` and `jre-openjdk` during update. Read about that in a pacman.conf man/wiki entry or just use a GUI like Pamac and manually tick them off before updating everything else.
Proper fix is updating `java-openjfx` to in the repo, but that's on maintainers.

Temporary workaround: sudo pacman -Syu --ignore=java-openjfx --ignore=java-openjdk --ignore=jre-openjdk --ignore=jdk-openjdk --ignore=jre-openjdk-headless
