Pacman 4 Upgrade

Pacman 4 has moved from testing to core.  The upgrade caused some dependency hell for me, I had to uninstall a few packages before pacman itself would upgrade.  They were:

yaourt
pyalpm
yajl
namcap
package-query

Once those packages were removed pacman upgraded just fine.  Once pacman is upgraded you’ll need to do some additional steps to get package signing to work.  Check out this blog post and wiki page for details:
