I’m finding this as an issue with latest version of fmt again.

pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/fmt-7.0.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

and boom fixed

Neither related to waybar nor fmt, it is related to: libspdlog1

I just took a look again and noticed the ‘waybar’ command I was executing was located under ‘/usr/local/bin’ while the current build (using arch’s latest jsoncpp) installed to ‘/usr/bin’. Using the correct path fixes this issue for me. Sorry for the noise.
