I can't install/uninstall anything with octopi in plasma5, it says that kdesu should be installed, but it is already installed. Anyone else have this problem?

Cheers!

Was there any kind of "heads up" about the change in accessing the AUR from octopi? I spent a good amount of time re-installing things wondering why yaourt decided to break, finally finding this answer of "clicking the green alien face". I guess I'm probably just a complete noob and don't even know where to find information like this

Not that I know of. I know it caught a lot of Manjaro users by surprise, and was talked about rather extensively on this forum. Arch users may possibly have gotten some sort of notice, but I doubt it.

Best bet is to monitor this forum. Those sort of things are posted about rather quickly, as soon as they become evident to the user(s).

Ctrl+U should do an upgrade, but nothing happens here.
The upgrade icon is grey as well.

Does this only do anything if there are any updates available?

There are plenty updates happening currently. Maybe your mirror is outdated or even offline ...

Which one is better? The one you like most is best for you.
Does it mean Pamac is not good? Of course not. Pamac is prefered by many users and it is installed in the majority of Manjaro spins.

Linux is best known for its freedom of choice. Let there be many choices, so we can stick with our very own, despite the common taste.
