Welcome If you look at your /etc/pacman.conf and the wiki you will see how the artix repo hierarchy goes. system-world-galaxy on top of extra and community from arch (core is disabled and totally replaced by system). Gremlins is the equivalent of arch's testing. Kernel updates, because they take so much human and cpu power to build, are slower and jump editions. They are also cleaner from nasty stuff like speck-crypto. AUR helpers that were dropped from arch exist on artix. Also check out artools and see if you need to make use of them.
