For now two days, I cannot update the software on my Pi. Package raspberry-firmware fails:

$ pacaur -S raspberrypi-firmware                 
warning: raspberrypi-firmware-20121206-1 is up to date -- reinstalling

error: command failed to execute correctly

The .INSTALL is apparenty deleted afterwards so I cannot check it.

Google finds a discussion in a forum where someone says it is not serious and should be ignored but I don't know if I should trust him.

xenoxaos is a developer for Arch ARM, you can trust him. –  Munkeh Dec 9 '12 at 20:29
    
Are there disk errors appearing in the syslog? Check output from dmesg. I get those syntax errors when the filesystem's corrupt. –  scruss Dec 9 '12 at 22:47
    
Munkeh: indeed, the Pi can reboot and the new firmware apparently run. I plan to close my question. –  bortzmeyer Dec 11 '12 at 21:08
