I’m trying to install in a parallels VM following this tutorial on YouTube:
- I had no problems up until I tried to run the endeavouros install script. If I do not modify the mirrors file (so using http://mirror.archlinuxarm.org/$arch/$repo), I consistently get 404s on the Firefox package.
- If I use the California mirror, I fail with 403s about 220 packages into the first pacman sync.
- I get consistent results (same packages fail, for the same errors… 404s on mirror.archlinuxarm.org, 403s on ca.us.mirror.archlinuxarm.org)
Interestingly in the first case (using the global mirror), while the first wave of pacman fetches fails out fast, the installer continues and the second wave succeeds. This results in a broken install that exactly matches this post: Pinebook Pro: Lightdm fails to start on first boot. "Can't launch X server X, not found in path"
pacman -S xorg-server fixes it for me as well… Firefox is missing of course, but if I switch the mirror list to somewhere else, syncing the package succeeds and Firefox installs fine after that.
My network setup is pretty vanilla, no VPNs, unusual firewall rules, proxies, etc. I’ve installed non-ARM endeavour just fine without any issues syncing packages.
