Today my daily "pacman -Syu" refused to upgrade due to a missing graphiz package.

Somehow Anjuta 2.4 (from testing)requires graphiz >= 2.18, but I can't find that package anywhere.

Even Anjuta 2.2 needed graphiz, but that is not in the repos.

So what package does/did actually graphiz?
This task depends upon

The package is called graphviz and not graphiz.

The graphviz package is in testing and has the right version. Do you use the testing repository below the extra repository? I don't know how pacman handles this, but the version in extra has a force flag set, which forces downgrade to 2.16 when trying to upgrade. I don't know if a versioned dependency can overrule that flag, I guess not.

No, force will allways install, even over "higher" version, that's what it's for I guess.

Sorry, I think Pierre is right, it all boils down, to a typo.

Installing graphviz fixed the issue, sorry for any inconvenience.
