Missing package and invalid and corrupted file

All issues related to Garuda Linux and its assistance

when i try to install package it is saying missing package and invalid and corrupted file

error: missing package metadata in /home/eshan/Downloads/sendanywhere_latest_amd64.deb
error: '/home/eshan/Downloads/sendanywhere_latest_amd64.deb': invalid or corrupted package

Pls help me it's urgent

First of all welcome to the forum :slight_smile:
If its really that urgent you should do some research yourself - Garuda Linux is based on Arch Linux which means .deb files cant be installed, they are not compatible :eyes: also what command did you use?

I use
sudo pacman -U

and my add/remove program is also not opening

Hi @eshan, please run the below on a terminal:

paru -S sendanywhere

And proceed with all the default options

/home/eshan/.cache/paru/clone/electron8-bin/.gitignore

from gitignore/ArchLinuxPackages.gitignore at master · github/gitignore · GitHub

*.tar
.tar.
*.rpm
*.jar
*.exe
*.msi
*.zip
*.tgz
*.log
.log.
*.sig

*/

it stopped here

Can you send a screenshot screenshot instead? I have a feeling that I don't have the full information of what's going on on your computer...

When i try to post it website will say new user cannot upload image
i have copied the whole terminal and pasted it right here:

@eshan Okay. Rerun the paru command I posted above and this time there is no need to review PKGBUILD, and no need to review any diff. Skip those by typing n and pressing enter :slightly_smiling_face:. In fact skip reviewing or viewing anything as it will take you somewhere else instead of proceeding to install.

when i type n it will end process

@eshan Okay

paru -S sendanywhere --skipreview

This should do it.

It's better if OP search and find the answer before someone moves this thread to 4xx error :crazy_face:
