When looking for sources for downloading you files it takes like 10 minutes and sometimes it’ll update the installer after sending you right back to the beginning of the install again.
You have to wait until the new version is downloaded. The Installer does not close immediately… as it is opened automatically when the session is loaded. Best way is to close the installer when it shows up and wait until it is updated, but never go on while it’s being updated.

The Installer can’t do much about this, can it?
Now the big one I’ve been hearing about and found a workaround but people shouldn’t have to do this. If you doing a reinstall and you don’t do this and I did it from mint then you are going to get an error. I first opened up nemo and then clicked system and when I got there I right click on boot folder and chose open as root then I opened it and opened the EFI folder and I deleted the old Antergos.efi file and then I closed and went into terminal and it took me a while to learn this because I’m a noob but it worked. At the terminal type sudo efibootmrg and then get a list, then type whatever Antergos is listed as lets say 0002 I typed sudo efibootmgr 0002b -B and it deletes the entry and then I typed sudo update-grub (…)
If I understand, this error is because you reinstalled without formatting your /boot partition, right? I’ll check this one asap.
and then rebooted and reinstalled but after the new installer came out I can’t even install.
Do you mean install or reinstall? Which error do you get? Without more info it’s nearly impossible to know what’s going on, sorry.
I don’t blame you guys for a crappy installer, it seems the installer crew needs some extra QC done before releasing a new version is all and a few bugs slipped through the cracks.
Well… calling it crappy it’s a bit harsh… but it’s true that we should do more QC before releasing… but bear in mind that this is an online installer, so even if we do the necessary tests, just a change on one package can break everything (and that’s what happened with the error #809 of this thread).
P.S. Don’t get mad at me, but your post was a bit difficult to read. Next time break your post into more paragraphs.
