Is there a utility for Arch that provides some power-features for analyzing the list of pending updates?
Usually, anytime I do
pacman -Syu I get a rather large list of packages with pending updates. With AUR packages added to it, it is even worse. There does not appear to be an easy way to differentiate dependencies and libraries from actual software I requested (unless I happen to have memorized the package). It is also not easy to tell which packages are major version upgrades and which ones are minor.
pamac from Manjaro provides a table which is a bit more legible, but still no way to easily see only updates to explicitly installed packages, or only major updates.
It seems like it would be relatively easy to parse
pacman output and provide a sortable and filterable list of pending updates so that one can see at a glance whether certain important software is impacted by a given update, and how much. Does such a tool exist already?
