Hi everyone, today I can’t install anything with sudo pacan -Sy package, he do the all process to installation but fails on file checking process, saying that:
a lot of filenames of packages is already on the filesystem.
And just broke the installation. I hope this don’t break an update, but can’t see that way if he locks the installation after see the packages is already on the filesystem, but it’s to update or install, not just keep there. Isn’t?
I already read that is check process and output message is “by design, will not overwrite files for you. This is by design, not a flaw.” But don’t help me to solve a package manage system.
I tried to install dconf-editor, so use sudo pacman -Syu dconf-editor. The output was the following:
/usr/share/locale/tr/LC_MESSAGES/libhandy.mo existe no sistema de arquivos libhandy: /usr/share/locale/uk/LC_MESSAGES/libhandy.mo existe no sistema de arquivos libhandy: /usr/share/locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES/libhandy.mo existe no sistema de arquivos libhandy: /usr/share/vala/vapi/libhandy-1.deps existe no sistema de arquivos libhandy: /usr/share/vala/vapi/libhandy-1.vapi existe no sistema de arquivos Ocorreram erros e, portanto, nenhum pacote foi atualizado.
It’s saying that the fille libhandy and so on exists on the file system. The last error output was that errors occurred, so no packages were updated. But it’s the last lines of the output, have a lot of files with the same output.
Sure, I think it’s the main problem that causing all of this. I really did some changes on some /var/lib/pacman files and folders. It’s better to think reinstall than trying to fix it and ultimately wasting more time trying to actually fixing something. Thank you two anyway
