[SOLVED] Can't update system

Post by kes__ »

I have 5.13.13-arch1-1 and system is fairly up to date

I am trying to update using this command

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Syy
and get this error
:: Synchronising package databases...
core 138.8 KiB 817 KiB/s 00:00 [--------------------------------] 100%

I've cleared the package cache. updated mirrors (I think), and installed latest arch keyrings.

Can anyone help with this error

Do a clean install that will be easier.

We changed our server from bike to ant.
Many articles and videos about it.

Your system is not up to date at all.
The change was three months ago.
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.

Here is how I fixed it.

1 Edited

Code: Select all

nvim /etc/pacman.d/arcolinux-mirrorlist
and changed bike to ant

Pacman database now updates.

2 ... however when trying to update packages it complained that
betterlockscreen-git and betterlockscreen are in conflict
I fixed this with a

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Rdd betterlockscreen
then updated the pacman database again

and then updated the packages

and everything now working.

System is now up to date.

Eric, Thanks for the pointer and the help.
