-Syyu or -Syuu ?
Here's a recent post at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login:
I always wait for Octopi to inform me that updates are available, then open a terminal and use sudo pacman -Syuu.
The extra "u" will alert me of any conflicting dependencies with things I have installed via the AUR.
I've been doing it this way for 17 months and only ever had the one issue that I mentioned previously.
I never figured out what caused that though, but it's ok now!  
Thanks for the tip Spatry - will definitely consider it.


And who was it that said that Manjaro was a "user friendly" Arch distro?

You want to use the -Syyu switch... That command forces lists to synchronize first before performing an update.

Can you actually use this distro anymore? Or is it considered obsolete? I want to know since it looks like a great distro

I'm curious to know, is this re-spin an XFCE DE ?

Yes, the desktop is based on XFCE. Matthew Moore did a review some time back. The theming and setting panel give away the specific DE. Included the video below.

I have not spoken to Matthew in ages and it is unknown if this spin is being updated.
