My current PC runs windows, before I finish my second build, I wanted to test installing, setting up and ricing i3-gaps on Arch in VMWare Workstation 14 before installing it on a new system. First I used Antergos with GNOME and I had a LOT of trouble configuring i3wm to work right. I didn’t even have either .Xdefaults or .Xresources files to begin with, I couldn’t open my terminal emulator even after configuring it to directly open urxvt in my i3 config file, and there were a TON of other issues with seemingly basic configurations that I ended up accusing the original DE, GNOME for. So I scrapped it and started over with a minimal install of Antergos. Now I’m signed in to that black terminal, and I go to install some things “sudo pacman -S i3 dmenu” and it finds the files, asks if I’d like to proceed with installation [Y/n]? I say yes and many, many lines of errors run through ending with this:
warning: failed to retrieve some files
error: failed to commit transaction (download library error)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
I have Network Manager installed, I checked. What do I do if I can’t install anything?
