mine is sweet colored
Ok i am gonna pretend i understood how do i update?
Yep I'm the same I'm totally lost ,This Distro started out user friendly now the updates are getting difficult .best i go and do a linux course.
Honestly it's not hard you literally just follow what is in this post and this one (Warning: config file /etc/pacman.conf option not recognized)
It's a good learning experience if it's too hard for you you might want to go to a different distro other than Arch.....
If a still Linux noob (me) can do this anyone can
I was going to say pretty much this. Merging pacnew files is just something that happens time to time. ALL Arch based distros will have to do this at some point.
SOrry I must be missing something but I can't follow up / apply the solution... Note sure how to do your diff stuff....
Include = /etc/pacman.d/chaotic-mirrorlist is in my pacman.conf
Tks for your patience...
Which part? The steps are all detailed in the OP.
no pacman-manager just will not open still
or is this the way it is till they fix the lib13 .so thing
This is the way.
This is the way.
ty and i fixed it kinda need to look how to do that diff to compare but seems better lol.
diff /etc/pacman.conf.pacold /etc/pacman.conf
would that show me the diff between my old file and the new? is this right?
so i could copy to new file
I have also learned that it won't work for [ chaotic aur]
If you typed included that dam 'D'
Don't ask me how I know
So can I just update my system with pacman -Syyu While the pamac doesn't work ? Or Should I wait a day or 2 ? my totaldownloads problem is gone since I commented it on the .conf. I will keep an eye on the forums to see when to update
i did something i get a this now :failed retrieving file 'chaotic-aur.db'
Yes. If you've built any AUR packages, you'll need to use paru to update them. Also, two y's usually isn't necessary.
Just one 'y', though. Easier on the repository to let it just check the hash for updates rather than download the whole database each time.
