Yeah, that makes sense. So, if the hunspell dependecies are to blame I guess we can either wait for them to be fixed (could take days, maybe more) or we can find a workaround to somehow exclude them from the installation process.
Someone posted a workaround on removing Clementine dependencies from antergos-kde-meta:
Could something like this, so removing hunspell-es from antergos-common-meta, be a temporary solution?
Hi everyone! Fairly new to Linux, totally new to Arch, so please be gentle.
I’m getting the exact same error as @JD342 above. Trying to reinstall Antergos 18.6 with Gnome on the same machine from a Live CD that worked perfectly fine just a week ago. Cnchi is 0.14.426. Here’s an example log:
I get exactly the same warning as above (Error reading group ‘cinnamon’ from the antergos repo db) followed by an error (Can’t resolve these dependencies: hunspell-es ).
I’ve tried the following:
using default mirrors instead of recommended
manually selecting mirrors
installing without any optional packages
I’ve tried what @joekamprad suggested in this thread:
Can’t install necessary packages. Cnchi can’t continue..
Using this custom mirror list seemed to work for the OP but it only breaks Cnchi for me. First I get this:
It just says “loading, please wait” for several minutes after I click on Install It. If I click again I can continue but only until the Location selection screen, where, when I select the location, see below:
Notice that the message on the top changes to ‘Choose installer language’ which I already did. At this point I’m unable to proceed with the installation and I can just close Cnchi.
Could there be an issue with this hunspell-es package? Background story, my Antergos worked fine until yesterday when I tried updating it and received some error about the dependency issue with hunspell. This prevented me from updating anything. Feeling brave and smart, instead of looking this up I figured I could just uninstall hunspell from the system completely (it’s just a spellchecker, right?). Restarted, couldn’t load into GUI at all, Light DM failure. This is a whole reason I am reinstalling (this is my secondary machine so not a big deal, but still…).
Would appreciate any ideas on what to do next.
