yes, or run
# pacman -Su --force
and it will replace it.  It is just a text file with the name of the artix release
anti-X  - artix - obarun - Void - systemD Free Space

Obviously the terms Open and Free mean nothing to you, or your business!

I have 2 laptops with Artix Linux installed.
On both, I have deleted this file and after that, the upgrade worked fine  :)
