but if this is stored under /tmp pacman should know that wts if files are stored under tmp they are temporary and should not be recommend to exist…
journalctl reveal these errors:
Apr 27 14:41:42 ordi-pat org.manjaro.pamac.user: Failed to initialize alpm library (unexpected error) Apr 27 14:41:42 ordi-pat org.manjaro.pamac.user: SpawnError: Failed to execute child process “mkdir” (No such file or director
Which I’m pretty sure is in file “src/alpm_config.vala”, line 144:
Process.spawn_command_line_sync ("mkdir -p %s/sync".printf (tmp_dbpath));
Everytime I tried to check for updates in pamac, the error occur. Somehow this command is failing to create the directory.
Very strange problem. Have you had long gaps (e.g. a month or more) between system updates on your non-VM install? If not, I’m about out of ideas.
/tmp will be cleaned upon reboots.
/var/tmp preserved across reboots.
i do not have this SpawnError but also file not found from pamac onto bolded text
’/var/lib/pacman/sync/*.files’ but i get updates…
I found the problem: I had set the PATH in /etc/environment to ~/.local/bin and apparently that doesn’t work in some cases. So it wasn’t finding the mkdir command. Adding things to PATH for all users is not simple at all.
I’ve had this problem for some time. If I do not remember to check for updates, my system gets woefully out of date. Pamac used to give me notifications just about every day. I haven’t made any changes to /etc/environment (although my system may have). In fact, this is all that is in that file:
# # This file is parsed by pam_env module # # Syntax: simple "KEY=VAL" pairs on separate lines # # >>> BEGIN ADDED BY CNCHI INSTALLER BROWSER=/usr/bin/chromium EDITOR=/usr/bin/nano # <<< END ADDED BY CNCHI INSTALLER
Is there some other setting I can check? I currently have the latest version of pamac installed.
The latest pamac is 6.3.1-1.
The things you could check are:
you can try these;
sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring antergos-keyring antergos-mirrorlist pacman-mirrorlist
I’ll give that a try. Thanks.
i was a bit shortworded ;)
I want to say rank the mirrors:
sudo cp /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist.bak sudo rankmirrors -n 0 /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist > /tmp/antergos-mirrorlist sudo cp /tmp/antergos-mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist sudo cp /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.bak sudo rankmirrors -n 0 /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist > /tmp/mirrorlist sudo cp /tmp/mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
Never mind. As soon as I posted my reply, I received a notice of an update.
