sudo pacman -Syu every day on Manjaro GNU/Linux, most of the times there are only a few or no packages to update, but like every ~7 days, it may prompts to update hundreds (~500) of packages, and it will take a long time to finish.
There might be 2 causes:
- I installed too many packages.
- One or more basic library packages have newer versions so all the packages depends on them have to re-compile (by the packagers) and upgrade too.
So my questions are:
- What are other possible causes for this?
- I want to keep my system up-to-date (always use the latest stable version of packages), but I don't want to cut my total installed package number or spend a lot of time to upgrade hundreds of packages. Is there any way I can do this?
Thanks in advance!
