• \[SOLVED\] Installation problem


    Hi
    I have just downloaded Antergos, looks really good.
    However, I’m trying to install into a virtualbox and install fails.
    'failed retreiving atergos.db from mirrors.antergos.com
    I have tried editing the mirrorlist file and the pacman -Sy
    still getting the same error

    Can anyone help with where I’m going wrong?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    I am working on getting a newer iso built for you to try. In the meantime once you have booted the live cd perform a system update with “su -c pacman -Syu” and then try the installer again.

  • Hi

    Thank you for the reply.

    On running the command

    su -c pacman -Syu

    I get the error

    su:invalid option – ‘S’

    ??

  • Hi, you are missing some quotes, this is the correct command:

    su -c 'pacman -Syu'

  • Oops sorry, basic error on my part there

    But even after putting in the quotes I still get

    Filed to prepare transaction (could not find database)

    That’s odd. There may have been an issue with a mirror at the time. Have you tried again?

  • I’ve tried several times over the past few days, same error each time.

    Don’t believe it’s my router as I can browse the Internet from the live virtual system

    Hi

    Could you tell me which mirror does it give you from your location opening this link?
    [http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x86_64/antergos.db?mirrorlist][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x8][1] … mirrorlist

    [0]: <a href=
    [1]: http://mirrors.antergos.com/antergos/x8

  • If I go to that link from my desktop PC, the correct page is displayed. If I then go via the virtual PC, nothing happens.

    Although from virtual I can get to any other website

    Curious

    Curious indeed

    that fixed it. Strange though that everything else insists on ‘bridged’

    Thanks for the help, updating now then will install and play with it

  • Yes, normally bridge should work fine. I believe it’s a bug affecting Arch because there are a few cases in their forums. Usually things like this get resolved through package updates pretty quickly. Anyway, hope you enjoy Antergos!

    Regards,
