• libksysguard package fails update, damaged / cannot load metadata

    I have problems with package libksysguard-5.14.3-1 as it fails to update. Have tried
    this but with no success. Have also updated the package database. What else could I try?

  • Have you tried to change the mirror?

  • Try verification,sudo pacman -Dk and sudo pacman -Qk see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta#Verification_and_repair

  • I do not yet know how to change the mirror, however, the -Dk tells me
    Fehler: ‘libksysguard-5.14.3-1’: description file is missing
    Fehler: ‘libksysguard-5.14.3-1’: file list is missing
    so I guess this is the hint.

    I tried to reinstall with pacman -S but it won’t work.

    it say it cannot find /var/lib/pacman/local/libksysguard-5.14.3-1/desc


    I have removed libksysguard and plasma-workspace and now the update procedure worked. I do not know what I need these packages for anyway.

  • Which DE are you using, because the two packages you’ve removed are quite essential for KDE.

  • just gnome

  • Okay, then just check, to make sure, if all your apps are working correctly. You might have installed a KDE app that depends on those packages. If not it was problably installed with an app you’ve already removed.

  • @Popkultur The last time I had an issue like this I did rm -rf /var/lib/pacman/local/xxxx and then reinstalled. This was based on a solution I found for some other issue.
    It’s probably worth seeing is you still have /var/lib/pacman/local/libksysguard* and removing, to avoid problems in the future.
