I think this is caused by newly named packages not specifying that they replace the older one. Often this can't be done because a libre package might be removed in place of the Arch package which we have no control over the PKGBUILD for.
to find packages that are no longer in the database, and thus probably have been renamed. I did this and found several packages that have been renamed that I didn't know about. I think I recall python being amongst them, and I use Anki myself on Parabola x86_64, so I expect it will be fixed after you install the new python.
