Package manager error in online install (offline is failing too)

Online installation on a clean disk. I chose to erase and install endeavour using all disk. Spanish language, XFCE, KDE and i3.
I have the same error no matter the options I choose: The package manager could not make changes to the installed system.

Since there seem to several topics on the same error, I merged them all together.

to see what was causing the error it would need to see the install log:
cat ~/endeavour-install.log | eos-sendlog
But there is currently an issue with hwinfo package at archrepo what will cause the issue.
I just remove hwinfo from being installed, so installs should be working now again.

probably the hwinfo … its in the screenshot

check the Base-devel group on installation please in some cases it will take the fallback packages list from the ISO what is including hwinfo:

no debe instalar los programas para ciegos si no quiere que su computadora comience a hablar :wink:

Screen reader and mouse tweaks (impaired vision) = Ajustes del lector de pantalla y del mouse (Suplementos para ciegos)

La instalaciĂłn deberĂ­a funcionar ahora de nuevo

sorry but does this solution also applies to the error I am having ?

yes see here:

Thank you

community/hwinfo 21.76-1 21.77-2 0,00 MiB 0,96 MiB
fixed it upstream so hwinfo can be installed again…

jajaja Thank you so much

Hola Dalto me parece que son distintos los errores, estoy estorbando a Joselitux.

Hello Dalto, it seems to me that the errors are different, I am hindering Joselitux

No creo que tu problema sea otro. USTED deberĂ­a poder instalar ahora sin ningĂşn problema.
