Acknowledge new location of package

This might be a stupid question.

I was running aurman to update my system and I saw the message:

libcap-ng moved from extra repo to core repo.
Do you acknowledge the new location of the mentioned package?

The default answer it no. I would be able to answer yes, right?

Yes you can, but I would verify that the package has indeed been moved. Otherwise, you might miss updates, because the package pointer has been modified.

How do I do that?

To verify, simply go to the Arch Linux website and search under their packages to see if you find the package. If it is not found, then, it has not been migrated. Alternatively you could run the following command “pacman -Ss packagename” in the terminal and check its output.
