Update question

how to upgrade to unstable version? ( like a " sid - debian " )

Just switch brach, you have here stable, testing and unstable branches. You’ll do it with two commands:

sudo pacman-mirrors --api --set-branch <choosen-branch>
sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack 5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

More about branches is here:



but, thats command not work(((

for me, work thats:

sudo pacman-mirrors --country Germany --api --set-branch unstable && sudo pacman -Syyu

(but, im not in Germany) - i think, can write my country ?
all work great!

Can i ask you? why is the non-stable branch not used by default?
arch is famous for its fresh software , isn’t it ?
I previously thought that if I want the very latest, freshest software, I just need to install either:
Sid - Debian or Any arch.

What’s commands? Please be precise, provide more info, logs, errors…

Because is not stable. All Linux distributions (including Arch) use stable branch by default.

You can still have more fresh software – Arch have testing repositories :stuck_out_tongue:
