Update fails, probably too little RAM

OK guys and gals Ive just done a fresh install on my dads PC and went to do updates with yay and dohhh it dosn't work .can someone please explain .

Use last snapshot. Use forum search function first.

Do you still think we're psychic?

Doesn't work, it's definitely not the error message in the terminal.


and post

inxi -Fxxxza

as text!

Even if you personally think it is unnecessary.

Please search any errors you receive in the terminal before opening a help request.

However, if you do need to open a help thread, then be sure to always post the error messages you receive as text only in your opening post.

C'mon Rob, you've been a forum member for 4 months now. You've come a very long ways in your Linux journey, but we still shouldn't need to be repeating this stuff to you at this point.

You've made great strides though, so congrats on that.


I mean.

Thanks and all was great until i went to update with yay has the cmd changed ?

paru is the new yay, but why you do not post the error message?


Apologies team i just thought it was an easy question ill post with inxi

OMG thankyou and i can not post the error message as the pc im talking about is 20 km away thanks for your help

Sorry to bother everyone with such a petty question .Many thanks to those who helped .

Cheers Rob

It's difficult enough for us to troubleshoot a remote PC that has someone in front of it. It's very, very difficult to troubleshoot a remote PC that's 20km away from the other person. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Although, for the future, you could look into some sort of remote access software, e.g. SSH or a remote desktop.




Yes and thanks mate i realize that .I just assumed it would be an easy cmd.i will be getting the pc today then ill post the inxi.Oh by the way paru dosnt work .why cant the developers keep it the same.its like you have to constantly be researching this distro to keep up to date .
Asi i said i downloaded the latest iso and now cant update with yay.

Oh ok then thanks for the update i got dad to type paru and he gets a message unrecognized.ill post inxi today thanks.

Have you installed yay?

Search the forum. This isn't new.


oh ok thanks i must be searching the wrong topics.searching for updates must not be the topic
Cool found the solution thanks everyone .help vamp out lol

sudoo - pacman -sextra / kwin

Actually, topic search is not up to date in most recent iso, you might want to try paru -S updated-topics yay-or-nay next time you are logged in and don't forget to update the keyring with pamac.
