• Pacman won't upgrade/EVE Online installation


    Hello people,
    First of all, I’m kinda new here, so if this post is on the wrong place, please forgive my ignorance (:
    So, heading to install Eve Online, I started facing a few problems. Following the directions of this link, I checked to see if I had multilib already, and to see if it was uncommented or not on /etc/pacman.conf
    When asked to type

    sudo pacman -S wine wine_gecko winetricks q4wine wine-mono lib32-gnutls samba lib32-mpg123 lib32-sdl lib32-libldap lib32-libpulse
    

    I received the following:

    error: configuration file /etc/pacman.conf, line 1: all directives must belong to a session
    

    and now I have no idea what to do or how to bring pacman.conf back to normal. Can anyone help me with this?

    oh boy, here we go again

  • Publish your pacman.conf so we can see what’s wrong, please (you can use paste2.org and put the link here)

    Cheers!

  • Here it is!
    http://paste2.org/tzvpYZ5E

    oh boy, here we go again

  • Odd. I see no problems there.

    What do you get if you issue a :
    sudo pacman -Syyuu

  • The exact same error:

    error: configuration file /etc/pacman.conf, line 1: all directives must belong to a session
    

    oh boy, here we go again

  • The only thing I did when trying to install EVE was insert the # in [multilib], then removing right after the error came up. But then, the error continued to appear. I have tried rebooting three times already to no avail.

    oh boy, here we go again

  • Geez, I don’t see what’s wrong with your setup.

    Can you also post your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist file?

    There is an error in your pacman setup (or so it seems).

  • Here, take a look
    http://paste2.org/HzVOXAX2

    oh boy, here we go again

  • @karasu comparing my pacman.conf i see a missplaced line(priority), but i’m newbie, not sure if is this.

    [antergos]
    SigLevel = PackageRequired
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist

    from @olivigora is at the bottom, mine is above #[testing]
    What do you think?

    Antergos (default OS) - WIN10 (abandoned)
    I3wm - Mate desktop
    AMD - A4 7300 Radeon graphics
    16 GB ram
    HD 1 TB
    Linux newbie since 06/2016

  • I tried doing what @fernandomaroto suggested but nothing changed

    oh boy, here we go again

  • This is really odd.

    OK, please comment the multilib repo in pacman.conf:

    #[multilib]
    #Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    

    and use this http://paste2.org/nVghP7dY as your mirrorlist file (rename the one you already have).

    Remember to uncomment one or two of the mirrors in the mirrorlist file.

    EDIT: Just in case, comment also the Antergos repo in pacman.conf:

    #[antergos]
    #SigLevel = PackageRequired
    #Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist
    
  • Did what @karasu said, but nothing changed. Still get the same error.
    I may be saying something stupid, but isn’t there something wrong with line 1? Shouldn’t it be something more than just #?

    oh boy, here we go again

  • Ok, let’s do this.

    Move your pacman.conf and your mirrorlist files to somewhere else, like /tmp.

    Reinstall pacman and pacman-mirrorlist:

    sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/pacman-5.0.1-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
    sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/pacman-mirrorlist-20161114-1-any.pkg.tar.xz
    

    See if now you can update your repo databases and system:

    sudo pacman -Syyuu
    

    In line 1, you can put whatever you like as long as it starts with #

    I’m starting to think that there’s something else wrong here.

    EDIT: Could you try this sudo pacman -Syyuu --debug and put the output also in paste2 ?

  • Again, it seems pacman is nothing but unusable. I get the same old error when trying to reinstall it. Will try moving it to another folder.
    Will give the result of the debug in a minute.

    oh boy, here we go again

  • Okay, results from the last tries:

    as long as the command is

    sudo pacman
    

    nothing seems to work. Maybe if I copy someone else’s pacman.conf?

    oh boy, here we go again

  • It seems the problem isn’t with pacman.conf at the same time it seems it is. I copied your file, @karasu , but when I try sudo pacman -Syyuu I get the same error.

    oh boy, here we go again

  • To be honest, I do not know what’s wrong here. It complains about pacman.conf but pacman.conf is ok ¿?

    Let’s hope somebody else knows what’s happening here.

    EDIT: Oh, remember to run pacman with --debug and post it, maybe something else is shown.

  • Thanks for the help, @karasu
    About the --debug, it shows the exact same error, pacman.conf is totally unusable

    oh boy, here we go again

  • UPDATES:
    After updating a few stuff, I got a different error when trying to access pacman.conf. It gives the following

    [---------@--------- ~]$ sudo pacman -Syyuu --debug
    [sudo] senha para ---------: 
    debug: pacman v5.0.1 - libalpm v10.0.1
    debug: config: attempting to read file /etc/pacman.conf
    erro: configuration file etc/pacman.conf, line 1: all directives must belong to a session. 
    [---------@--------- ~]$ 
    
    

    oh boy, here we go again
