I get errors while trying to install apps or update the system

It's my first time using Garuda. I have installed and used Arch and Manjaro before.
I have installed Garuda 3 times but I keep getting the same error.

  1. This error when I try to update: warning: database file for 'chaotic-aur' does not exist (use '-Sy' to download) error: target not found: garuda-hotfixes error: target not found: chaotic-keyring

Apparently the mirrorlist file is horribly corrupted; it looks like you've got a copy of the site index page rather than a list of mirror servers.

Which image did you install, and what are you doing after booting into the installed OS to trigger this issue?

I did absolutely nothing after installation. I just ran the Garuda assistant to update the system and this happens. First two times I used with KDE Dr460nized. Then the third time I used KDE bare one. All three times I did absolutely nothing just installed the system and ran the update command to get this error.

Apparently the mirrorlist file is horribly corrupted; it looks like you've got a copy of the site index page rather than a list of mirror servers.

So now how do I fix it?

Go here:

and follow the instructions to re-add the repository to your system.

Then you can work out why it became corrupted in the first place so, if there is a problem, it can be fixed.
