• powerpill -Syu shows AttributeError

    I have installed powerpill to use it to upgrade system instead of using pacman. After installing, I tried to update my system using ‘sudo powerpill -Syu’ , but the following error came up:

    d7944b|ERR | 0B/s|/var/lib/pacman/sync/core.db
    fa06a5|ERR | 0B/s|/var/lib/pacman/sync/extra.db
    edabe4|ERR | 0B/s|/var/lib/pacman/sync/community.db
    751eea|ERR | 0B/s|/var/lib/pacman/sync/multilib.db

    Then I edited pacman.conf with adding the following option for each repository:
    SigLevel = PackageRequired

    And the problem is solved, but not completely. Now, when I run ‘sudo powerpill -Syu’ I got the following error:

    What to do? Please help.
    Thank you for reading this.


  • @mahadihs said in powerpill -Syu shows AttributeError:

    Pm2ml’ object has no attribute ‘refresh_databases

    Long time since i use powerpill (i only use to install Porergos online)
    Read the posts here from powrpill package on AUR:

    Probably you’ll need to update p2ml before powerpill restarts working.

    OBS: I don’t recommend using powerpill for daily use, it may download from not synced servers and then you’ll have “corrupted packages” and needing to redownload them again.
    Also if you update your system everyday or once a week there wont be too much stuff to download, unless you have a bad internet speed.

  • Powerpill is a pacman wrapper … so it is not using it instead of pacman ;)
