• \[SOLVED\] VLC doesn't download in Pacman


    When installing VLC via pacman it leads to error retrieving file for the packages, which seems like non of the mirrors work.
    Any ideas?

  • Do a hard refresh of your package databases with:

    sudo pacman -Syy
    

    Let me know if that fixes it for you!

  • It does! Thanks. Still don’t know my way around the whole of Pacman yet, I’m used to apt-get too much…

    Yes, pacman can seem overly complicated when coming from using apt or yum. However, once you get to know pacman you will wonder how you ever went without it! Take a look at this page, it was very helpful to me when I first started with pacman: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman_Rosetta][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman_Rosetta][1]
