[OPEN] Installation failing rsync error

Post by kidgoldenarm » Sun Mar 15, 2020 4:09 pm

Just downloaded latest ArcolinuxD v20.3.4 ISO for full metal install.

There is something wrong with the installer.
The wallpaper doesn't show up like usual and it continues to fail and stop at around 29%.

"Install Failed

Failed to unpack image "/run/archiso/bootmnt/arch/x86_64/airootfs.sfs"

rsync failed with error code 10.

My troubleshooting:

-I re-downloaded the ISO and checked the sha1 and they matched up
-Burned to another USB thumb drive using Etcher
-Attempted install
**Fail same issue as above

-I re-downloaded the ISO and checked the sha1 and they matched up
-Burned to another USB thumb drive using command line
-Attempted install
***Fail same issue as above

-I re-downloaded the ISO from another source from the downloads page
-Burned to same USB using Etcher
-Attempted install
***Fail same as issue above

-I swapped in another physical hard drive to computer (same model SSD, I have multiples of them)
-repeated same steps as above with Etcher and FAIL again

-So just to be sure, I swapped back to original drive
-Downloaded install ISO's for Manjaro LXDE, Manjaro XFCE, and Arch
-Burned each ISO to the same USB each time and installed each time successfully

I have been trouble shooting this since 6:00am this morning so about 5 hours now.
I'm relatively convinced I haven't made an error.

I think your latest ISO for ArcolinuxD is corrupted

Lets first make sure it is not corrupt.

Can you give me the link you downloaded the iso with?

I will download it.

Burn it.

Install it.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.

Keep analyzing why it happens on your hardware.
