pacman -Sy

Hi, I just wanted to point out that "pacman -Sy package" is not always wrong, for example sometimes it's a trick to first explicitly upgrade a specific package before doing a system upgrade with "pacman -Su", like in [1], which I have undone. It's usually ok to replace -Sy with -S or -Syu, but that shouldn't be done without taking each particular situation into consideration :) -- Kynikos 08:54, 6 February 2012 (EST)
