I am trying to install the dbeaver package using the command pacman -Syu dbeaver. However, the version that is downloading and installing is older than what shows available on the Arch website.

pacman wants to install dbeaver-7.2.5-1. The website shows dbeaver 7.3.0-1 is available: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/dbeaver/

I've tried pacman -Syyu to ensure everything's up to date. How do I get the newest available version?

I had the same problem - it appears that some mirrors get updated faster than others.

Edit /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist - you should see entries like:

Server = https://mirror.bethselamin.de/$repo/os/$arch
Server = https://mirror.lnx.sk/pub/linux/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch

Try to change the first server to a different mirror, then run pacman -Syyu again.


I cannot figure out why your pacman fails to recover the latest version; sudo pacman -Syy should fix the problem. Maybe you have some conflict dependencies?

However, if you're not able to make pacman work properly, you always can download the PKGBUILD, clicking on Source Files on the right box of the Archlinux package page. Then you can download the PKGBUILD file (this one) and compile it on your own.

The complete procedure should be:

mkdir tmp && cd tmp
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/archlinux/svntogit-community/packages/dbeaver/trunk/PKGBUILD
makepkg -si
# enjoy!
