Pacman -Syu fails because /usr/bin/easy_install exists in filesystem
Now I read on google plus that if you move easy_install out of the bin, it will work, I don't want to do that, why doing that? it's not a solution, it's a hack. I also read this, so I tried
pacman -Syu --ignore filesystem,bash
Still fails, same exact error. I want to know why this is happening, I've been on Mangaro for years and I have never had such an issue, and why Pacman isn't ignoring the filesystem?
Perhaps the solution is just moving
easy_install out, but that's like taking pain killers to heal a broken arm. And indeed everything is working after moving easy_install out, but that's not the question, and why easy_install? the silliest and most useless package of all perhaps.
