I tried upgrading my packages with
pacman -Syu and got an error message.
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) lsb-release: /etc/lsb-release exists in filesystem (owned by manjaro-release) Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
So I thought I could try backing up the
/etc/lsb-release file (with another name) so maybe the conflict would be resolved after doing another upgrade.
pacman -Syu again now succeeds without errors, the
/etc/lsb-release file contains the following:
LSB_VERSION=1.4 DISTRIB_ID=Arch DISTRIB_RELEASE=rolling DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Arch Linux"
While it used to contain:
DISTRIB_ID=ManjaroLinux DISTRIB_RELEASE=21.1.6 DISTRIB_CODENAME=Pahvo DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Manjaro Linux"
So my system is now recognizing Arch as its distribution which is not right. Is it possible to reverse this action and what did I do wrong?
