Re-installed Deepin after seeing that DeepinOS (China) came out with their final version (v20). I assumed Arch version would have some of the same functioning features but probably not. My problem is that I can’t access AUR repositories or files to install some of the software into Deepin. Before this finalized version came out I had Google-earth, skycharts, xnviewmp, xygrib-git, photofilmstrip, Octopi-git, lightzone, installed and now I can’t even download these from the AUR repository. As far as the Arch files are concerned without a package manager I have to go through all of the Arch files to find the programs to install with pacman -S (pkg). This is no big deal but I do want to install files from the AUR repositories. I get installation errors on all of them when I try to use yay -S (pkgname). Any help , idea’s or suggestions would be appreciated. . . . Maybe I should just re-install Cinnamon and completely forget Deepin.
Clear your cache first, then make sure pacman is up to date with no errors before trying again. If you stalled out and started a sync, I’ve had issues where other things won’t progress further.
Also as noted already, deepin is and always has been a very buggy experience. If you need something more reliable I would suggest others, but it is beautiful, and if you like to tinker you’ll be fine. Just fair warning.
