I have a GCC7 and GCC7-libs packages that need to be updated. I tried updating GCC7 and it took over an hour and then it failed. I did some quick googling and it seems that these packages take a while to update, however I am unsure why it keeps failing in the end.
Anyone else see this issue lately with these package updates? TIA.
Thank you to both of you for your help, I have a fully working system again! Thank you guys so much, I was super worried I’d have to reinstall everything from scratch again!
SUPER HAPPY, WOOHOO! =)
I’m curious what happened in the first place that put my system in a bad state, but glad that it’s resolved now.
To check if the problem is with the grub.cfg file, you could boot the Antergos installer and show the output of the following terminal commands:
su mount /dev/sdXY /mnt # Assuming no separate boot partition: cat /mnt/boot/grub/grub.cfg | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io # Assuming a separate boot partition: cat /mnt/grub/grub.cfg | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io
and show the returned short URL here.
Note that the values of X and Y above refer to the either boot (if you have a separate boot partition) or root partition.
You may get the values of X and Y using the command
I have ran all your commands and pasted it here for you to review:
Please let me know if I can run any additional commands to help troubleshoot this issue.
Thank you to both of you (@joekamprad and @manuel) for your time and help with these issues I am facing. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
you need to arch-chroot into the installed system from liveISO first and beforehand mount the partitions right.
to get the partitions:
sudo fdisk -l
show output here and i can guide you…
Here is the output of the command you requested:
Also took a Screenshot of my Gparted to help visualize things easier:
/dev/nvme0n1p5 --> Linux Root Partition
/dev/nvme0n1p6 --> Linux Swap
/dev/nvme0n1p7 --> Home Directory Partition
Please let me know if I can provide any additional information. This is installed on my Dell XPS 13 (9350) model.
