pacman -S clang

shows me version clang-5.0.0-1

and then install clang-5.0.0-1-x86_64

What kind of magic do I need to perform to install clang in version 6?

Performing pacman -Syu clang doesn't help (clang 5 is already installed).

Output from a command:

[root@27a829640c2f user]# pacman -Syu clang

    Was this accidentally flagged as "off topic"? I don't see any evidence yet that the problem has gone away. – Jeff Schaller May 29 '18 at 16:40

    I don't have clang installed, but when trying to install, v 6.0.0-1 is the candidate. – Bruno9779 May 29 '18 at 18:20

If there is an updated version of a package in the repositories and pacman can't find it, there are one of three issues.

  1. Your local database is out-of-sync with the mirror, so you have to fix that with pacman -Syu.

  2. The mirror(s) that you are syncing with are out of date. So you have to find and configure up-to-date mirrors.

  3. The package is in a repo that you haven't enabled in your pacman.conf.
