About Arch Linux Packages
In Arch Linux, packages are files containing the compiled software, along with any necessary files and metadata. These packages are used to install, update, and remove software on the system.
Packages in Arch Linux are stored in repositories, which are collections of packages that are maintained by the Arch Linux developers and community. When you install a package, Pacman (the default package manager for Arch Linux) downloads the package from a repository and installs it on your system.
Arch Linux uses a rolling release model, which means that package updates are continuously pushed to the repositories. This allows users to keep their systems up to date with the latest software without the need for a major release upgrade.
