nitrogen is package from Arch extra.
this looks like error on your side, you probably have outdated package database.
run
Code: [Select]
pacman -Sy
or
Code: [Select]
pacman -Syy
to update it.

For the future it is best to always try to update database when installing new packages.
to do that you can attach y option to install command, example:
Code: [Select]
pacman -Sy nitrogen

OK, erroring package "glibmm" with version "2.56", the version in Arch is already "2.58"
It was updated a day ago, see: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/glibmm/

As I said this problem is caused by mirrors, try to switch arch mirrors or wait some time for mirror to update.
Or go and report this to arch or mirror admin.

I believe that the mirror from which you download package database is little out of date.

You can find arch mirrorlist in "/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch"

pacman -Sy doesn't download or install/upgrade any packages, it only updates your database.  If you want to install glibmm this is what you have to do.

okay thanks for making it clear what's the cause, because i wasn't sure, i knew it's something from my side. Thanks!
