Awful lot of categories, so apologies if there’s a better one to post this in.
I’m currently trying to install xfce4 and only-office. I thought I’d just run KDE because I’ve always loved it, but I’m wondering if it’s a bit heavy for this old laptop and feel like I should give other DE’s a shot anyway. Every time I run the command, however, I get multiple of the following;
‘error: failed retrieving file ‘file_name’ from mirrors.any_mirror_it_tries.net : The requested URL returned error: 404’
Followed by a warning;
‘too many errors from this_specific_mirror, skipping for the remainder of the transaction’
The wifi is definitely working, because I’m typing this post up on the laptop I’m having this problem with. I’ve also attempted on two different wifi networks. I re-updated the mirror lists for both Arch and EndeavourOS (ran from the welcome app because I’m still getting used to the Arch command system and I don’t know the command off the top of my head).
Is there just a temporary bug with the servers, or is something else going on?
… That did it. I’d been using just the -S tag. Previous to Endeavour, I used Manjaro, which (first one I’ve ever seen) had a decent package manager GUI so I never got around to learning the update command. Install ran just fine, no errors whatsoever.
What kind of problems? I’m not hoping to keep them both, just play around in xfce for a little and see how I like it.
