solving arch linux error message: ":: installing pacman (5.2.1-1) breaks dependency 'pacman<=5.1.3' required by yay"

If you get the error message below, there are easy steps you have to do to fix this.

:: installing pacman (5.2.1-1) breaks dependency 'pacman<=5.1.3' required by yay
  • yay -S yay-bin
  • sudo pacman -Syy
  • sudo pacman -S pacman
  • yay -Syyu

So all in all, you will replace yay with yay-bin since yay-bin is newer and supports latest pacman. Afterwards, you are updating your database followed by updating pacman to the latest version. Finally, you will do your regular system update maintenance.
