• Antergos Installer Error


    Hello, I’m installing Antergos on my Dell Laptop. I have updated cnchi to 0.14.257 via the command line, but every-time I run the installer (after I have chosen my username) I get this error:

    Cannot create download package list (metalinks) Please reference the following number when reporting this error 593579

    I was get the same error if I don’t update cnchi first.

    I have pasted the log file to:

    PasteBin

    Can you help?

    Thanks

  • I have the same issue on a dell latitude e7450.

    Installer worked on that very same computer yesterday, but not today. Seems to be some trouble with downloading dependencies.

    I don’t have access to the logs right now, but can post later.

  • @jonesyp I can’t help but I can confirm the exact same thing happened to me today and I wound up with an unsuccessful install. It failed with the same error 593579.

    What I suspect is happening is the “rolling distribution” problem. With rolling distributions, sometimes packages break and later start working depending on what’s going on with development upstream. Cnchi, the Antergos installer, downloads updates to itself before starting the installation process. I suspect that Cnchi is broken and there’s nothing we can do until it’s fixed.

    In the meantime I went and installed Arch itself, got it running, and am typing this message inside gnome 3 on an Arch system. However, Arch is a difficult critter and I have weird codec problems and even can’t get my favorite browser, Vidaldi, to work properly. It also seems AUR inside Arch is more problemmatic. I’d rather go back to good ol’ Antergos.

    However, until this gets resolved I’m tinkering with my new Arch installation and maybe by the time Cnchi is repaired I will be happy to stay here in Arch proper. I don’t know!

  • There is a workaround located here: https://github.com/Antergos/Cnchi/issues/745

    I can confirm the workaround does work, as I just got it installed this way. Hopefully this will be fixed soon without the workaround.

  • @markupstart I tried it and success now. Thank guys!!!

  • Thank you, the workaround worked for me too.

  • Cnchi seems now to be updated, so things should be back to normal.
