I'm trying to install google chrome but dpkg seems to not be working. Here's what happens:
╭─[email protected] in /🔒
╰─λ sudo dpkg -i (file path)
dpkg: regarding .../google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb containing google-chrome-stable, pre-dependency problem:
google-chrome-stable pre-depends on dpkg (>= 1.14.0)
dpkg is not installed.
However, when I run dpkg --version this is what i get:
Debian 'dpkg' package management program version 1.20.9 (amd64).

I've tried searching but didn't find anything similar to this problem. Any help would be appreciated.
i have no idea what you just replied sorry
Use in terminal/konsole
sudo pacman -Syu google-chrome
ahh, first time
Refresh mirrors and other things
This is most definitely not Debian or any of it's derivatives, so 'dpkg' will not work. Garuda is an Arch-based distribution and Pacman is it's package manager.
Here is the Pacman Rosetta which shows the equivalent commands for Arch, Debian, Fedora, et al.
P.S. Gotta love old-school commands like 'dpkg.' IMHO it indicates a user with more than a passing interest in Linux. Bravo!
I had put the focus too much on google( I do not like)-chrome. Thereby the Debian stuff has gone down with me
That's OK! Read my P.S.
I like users not afraid to try.
