@Aarkon you can look into the logs while it's still running
@uint8_t Do you know from the top of your head which log the pamac updater writes its messages to?
@uint8_t Never mind, /var/log/pacman.log is matching perfectly with what pamac is showing. According to that log, pacman is still not finished with the job:
[2019-10-11 11:54] [ALPM] running 'xorg-mkfontscale.hook'...
Yet I see no associated thread using any resources. Damn.
@Aarkon try killing that subprocess?
@uint8_t Is that a safe thing to do or won't that leave a mess that either will keep my OS from booting the next time or pacman won't be able to pick up again?
@Aarkon nah, worst thing that can happen here is some font issues with xterm, and you can try to reinstall the offending package afterward
@Aarkon pacman is simpler and more robust than apt/dpkg in my experience
@uint8_t I hope you're right 🙈 (Won't blame you otherwise though)
