Tried to re-install the April release. It looks great. However, when I attempt to install software … it gives me a message along the lines of: ‘error: failed to commit (conflicting files) usr/lib/pll-kit-xxx.so exists in file system’.
Can I go to the identified file and just remove it, b4 reworking the install??
Tip: If you use package eos-update-notifier, you will get notifications and fix instructions about such problems automatically.
Thanks people … I have used the suggested command and all seems to be progressing as it should. Will a new release get me past this hiccup … or must I continue to use the work-around??
Extra problems …
the output now shows a number (10) already in the file system and the process bombs. What did I do wrong this time?? Help!!
lines begin systemd-libs, harfbuzz webkit2gtk libgsf lsb-release.
Please show the actual output. Did you follow the link @ringo added?
Those links happend sometimes , its not a unstability. But can possible be on packaging side, a symlink deowned and then goes back in. A package get splitted so you get more depency… it happends once a while but not every time.
Best is to setup a screenshot or a pastebin, if not in pastebin then in </> code or not to polute to much te screen to have a read out.
is not a big issue, but to learn a bit how to deal with it if news popups always good to read.
My fault … I think.
What I did was that I didn’t format both /root and /home before the installation. Residue from the previous install (Manjaro) complicated things. What I then did was reformat BOTH partitions and then do the install. Then after setting up my internet … I immediately ran the suggested pamac/pacman commands … to overwrite the particular files. Then I did the upgrades without issue. Now things are behaving properly. I don’t get long waits while the edd command runs, and I am able to install additional software as I want. EndeavourOS is beginning to run for me!
i think you got wrong a bit
package p-11 something has a symlink or something, but that symlink was losses a owner as example, but then update came back in but then you get a error like File exist in the system.
if you got a ssd en some residue of older installs you have also many more issue.
is also a proper way to show… guessing also doesnt bring good
its possible you get more of those notifications does not mean you have to reinstall…
online install fixes automatically but offline not. Giving feedback of a error in pastebin is always good.
sometimes can be small.
