Just installed ArcoLinuxB Qtile full 19.06.1 and ArcoLinux 19.06.1 with encryption and it installed fine.

I’m trying to install currently and am getting the exact same error. I tried cleaning out the drive of partitions and still no luck. Not really sure where to go from here.

Do not install with encryption...

or

experiment further...

Do not make it complex.

See the calamares article. It does work.

I can only assume what used to work now still works.

I tried for some time, but I couldn't get it to work. I tried the suggestions in the articles and no dice. From what I gleamed from this thread, it did not work before, the OP simply manually formatted the drive himself. I need encryption as it's a laptop. Interestingly, I had absolutely no problems installing Manjaro with same settings using Calamares.

I can do it manually, but I thought it might be worth fixing.

Is this a Calamares issue? I need encryption (and I always manually format for dual booting), hope the installer won't give me the same results.

Check how encryption is possible with calamares.
