    #   - repositories listed first will take precedence when packages
    #     have identical names, regardless of version number
    #   - URLs will have $repo replaced by the name of the current repo
    #   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture

    # The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and

    #
    
    # The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the
    # repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately

    Hi:

    Open console and type:

    sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
    

    And erase the first # and any blank space

    The error put "…line1: "

    And try to update.

  • Do you have a /etc/pacman.conf.pacnew file by any chance?

    @Archrysler

    sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
