That's pretty ugly. I find I have quite a use for a kernel. Better go fire up that Arch build I haven't looked at in a while.

Nothing ugly; on a working arch install, it's business as usual, I even use a wrapper around pacman that shows me the news.
Do what it says, life goes on.
Not sure what they meant by "You will have to install these separately on new installations", but I'm sure it's normal, too. ArchLinux tends to give you the information plain & unambiguous, regardless of how "ugly" it sounds.
