artix-archlinux-support moves to [universe]

As more and more packages are available through our repositories, we decided to move artix-archlinux-support to the [universe] repository. This package provides virtual systemd dependencies and Arch repository entries in /etc/pacman.conf. New users who wish to use Arch-provided packages, especially from [community], should:

1. Enable the [universe] repository
2. Install artix-archlinux-support and follow the post-install instructions

Existing users who have already enabled the Arch repositories are not affected.
