You can not have double lines

Code: Select all

error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo_3party' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo_xlarge' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo_3party' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo_xlarge' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo_3party' database (database already registered)
error: could not register 'arcolinux_repo_xlarge' database (database already registered)
It is already registered.

Meaning you have double repos in there /etc/pacman.conf
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
