sorry for you that you have trouble with installing, it looks like an issue with getting all packages fetched from the mirrors, this can happen in cases where you have failing mirrors, we can not get 100% working ones all the time with automated mirrorlist ranking from your place.

If you would be still on the livesession you could send the full install log what would give a more clear picture of exactly what was failing.

To solve this you can try to use “Update Mirrors” from the welcome app before starting installation and select your country and some nearby.

Thank you for your time
It seems it happens the same if I select another desktop environment
I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil . Since there’s no mirrors located in Brazil, I choosed to to look for US mirros
here is the list of mirrors after they were ranked by rate

I had the same problem like @unatrindade. I basically update the mirror list before installation, but this had not changed anything. However, I then omitted the LTS kernel from the selection for the time being, whereupon the installation then went through. I installed the kernel afterwards. I only read (and understood) something about LTS and mirrors in the error message, which suggests that the LTS kernel could not be fetched from the mirrors.

i5 2500, no DELL!

i see the issue now from your logs @unatrindade i will fix this will need half an hour, then it should work… also without the need to update mirrors manually!

done it…

I also tried running the install without touching update mirrors and I got the same error. Also changing DE selection causes the same error. I’m feeling luckless :laughing:

thanks for the good will :smiley:

Seems you do not understand me?
I say all online installs will fail currently, you need to wait till we fixed it, or use offline install xfce4.

In my case I’m getting that error even selecting the standard kernel because I don’t use Lts kernel

I got it, sorry did’nt saw your previous post. I’ll do an offline install so…
