When trying to open garuda programs such as garuda gamer it says "invalid or corrupted package" quickly before disappearing. I have already tried a reinstall and this issue is still persisting.

try updating your pacman mirror lists.

have tried that three times, no changes.

you tried this??

sudo reflector --country "your country" --latest 15 --age 2 --fastest 20 --protocol https --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Yes, and i just tried that exact command and i still get all of the same errors.

For clarification, this is a fresh install as of ~1 hour ago and the only settings changed are mouse sens and display settings. Immediately upon installing i was getting these errors from the Setup Assistant.

What version of Garuda did you install?

Just FYI it is more helpful if you post results. For example you mentioned you ran "exactly" that command that linuzo posted but if you ran it "exactly" it wouldn't work. You need to change country.

What are your IP settings? run ip a and post results. Can you ping google.com? ping google.com post results.

inxi -Fxxxaz is helpful so we know what you are on. etc.. Welcome to Garuda!

Is that actually the current ISO?

I did change the country, it only returns how long it took.

I installed dragonized gaming, ip a returns this.

It seems to me since you have connection, then the is issue that something corrupted during the install. Might want to redownload and try again.

You could try
sudo pacman -Scc

then try

sudo pacman -Syy

True, also just for kicks check directory permissions. Maybe something got mixed up with permissions:

can you post ls /var/lib/pacman
try sudo touch /var/lib/pacman/local/test.txt you can remove that later.
and or try running pacman from root console sudo su - and try updating mirrors and updating again.

You have some serious issues. Either your filesystem is corrupt or you hard powered down during an update.

If restoring a snapshot doesn't help then you should reinstall. There is no "easy fix" for this number of errors.
