Paccache - Cleanup your pacman cache

Is your root partition is full so dont worry paccache is here.

When you install a package with Pacman, it stores all downloaded packages in /var/caches/pacman/pkg folder. But pacman didnt remove old and uninstalled packages automatically by default so after a while the caches size will take upto the substantial amount of your HDD or SDD.

Fortunately with pacman’s built in funtion you can easily clear your caches with this command sudo pacman -Sc but the the problem with this method is it also clear the caches of your installed packages which are needed when package update doesnt work and you have to downgrade until the issue is fixed. Thats not a big disaster because you can easily downgrade a package using Arch repo.
