    On Arch based systems, the only package manager that should be used is pacman (optionally with an AUR helper). If packages are updated via other means, there will be conflicts. If a package is not in the repos or the AUR, then makepkg should be used to create one.

      Correct, and it’s true in every other Linux distribution may I add.

      You simply should not nistall software via language/application specific package managers (pip, gem, etc) system wide.

      Not sure if topgrade distinguishes beetwen/checks for packages installed system wide and locally to the user (but I guess it can, as it checks emacs, vim and others which usually install their packages locally to the user).

    BTW, topgrade doesn’t seem to support Slackware packages.
