Unable to install notepadqq on live image dr460nized

Downloading and booting garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-220822.iso inside Virtualbox. I know it's not supported as graphical issues, but need to test some things.

This is the error I get trying to install some software:

Have you tried refreshing the keyrings from within Garuda assistant first?

Edit: Type update remote keyring then update and you should be all good


You're doing a partial upgrade, and this will cause issues.

You need to update all packages - usually garuda-update is the way forwards here.

But, keep in mind that installing things in the live environment can create other issues, e.g. out-of-memory conditions. If you want to test you're better off installing into the VM.


No need to install any update.
Just do as root update remote keyring and when says :: Proceed with installation? [Y/n] answer n, then do as root pacman -Sy notepadqq and do proceed. Will install only notepadqq and qt5-webkit
