error installing repo packages

I have tried upgrade mirrorlist and pacman -Syy, problem still exists.

This likely indicates the repo's database does not include the correct details for the package file.

This is an issue with the repo and needs to be flagged with the ChaoticAUR maintainers.

This is interesting, I just updated the package and installed it afterwards :thinking:

Maybe still in your cache?

That is paleofetch-garuda package problem, I uninstalled paleofetch-garuda and installed paleofetch-git. Then using following command,

paleofetch --recache

You will get new Arch logo without a package error.

Update: I just tried remove all cache:

╰─λ yay -Scc
Cache directory: /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
:: Do you want to remove ALL files from cache? [y/N] y
removing all files from cache...

Database directory: /var/lib/pacman/

Build directory: /home/emanon/.cache/yay
==> Do you want to remove ALL AUR packages from cache? [Y/n] y
removing AUR packages from cache...

and re-synchronizing:

╰─λ yay -Syy

It seems this is a mirror issue. What can I do?

Change mirrors, update the repositories, update your system.

I have the same problem on a clean install. I have already tried Russia, Germany, Denmark and Switzerland mirrors, problem persists.
Yesterday I installed and updated my system without problem, today I decided to reinstall because of few mistakes I made, but ran into this problem.

If you keep doing this....

...this will keep happening.

Reinstallation is not reparation. Define the problem, research and apply the solution. That is how you repair breakage.

I know I sound like a hardass, but you have entered into a vicious cycle.

Hey there same Problem fresh install want to try out Garuda but same error Message when updating

Same problem. Swapping repos has no effect. Logs don't show much. Doesn't effect system usability for now though but a fix would be nice.

now Garuda-setup-assistent throw only error PGP not signed
