`eos-packagelist` not working (freezing / ConnectionResetError)

inxi -FAZ --no-host | eos-sendlog output: http://ix.io/4JOD

Background: I use XFCE as my DE and wanted to switch to KDE. So installed the necessary packages from here using pacman and not eos-packagelist because I didn’t read the post fully. So after reading it fully I decided to use eos-packagelist for the same.

Running eos-packagelist --list gives me this:

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

or just doesn’t do anything and just freezes.

Running eos-packagelist --install "Desktop-Base + Common packages" just doesn’t do anything and freezes like before.
I’d appreciate any help. Please let me know if there’s any information missing and I’ll add them.

Hi @squid, to save on any further issues I would just back up my files and do a fresh install, multiple desktop environments can get very messy especially if you are trying to figure out any issues


Thanks for replying @smokey! I have a separate home and root partitions. Would that help me to keep my files in the home folder while re-installing? Or is backing up and re-installing the only option?

Just thinking… What if you create a new user account and see if you have problems with the new account? Should be easy to test.

Another idea is to check if there are some conflicting packages, like two window managers, or something else.


I’d love to test that out, but I have some stuff I need to get done soon. For now, I’ll go with re-installing EndeavourOS.
To answer your question, yes I have qtile alongside xfce. And the above mentioned issue arose after I used pacman to install the plasma group.
But isn’t this purely some sort of a network error? Just curious

good idea

Could be a network error, maybe mirrors are not OK, etc.
But I guess you have reinstalled by now to solve the issue.

Yup! Loving KDE!
(Just to let you know, the installation gives me that “package manager…” error. I had to uncheck “solid” under KDE to resolve the issue)
