I installed KDE Timeshift, and I get an error message when I try to launch it.
Commands listed below are not available on this system:
Please install required packages and try running TimeShift again.
I have already installed “timeshift” and “timeshift-autosnap”. I also have the same program installed on my laptop which runs on Arcolinux, and there is no problem there.
What other dependencies am I missing?

core/pacman-mirrorlist 20200207-1 [installed]

==> Packages to install (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3 or ^4)
Please read the wiki @JR29 posted as to what cron is. cronie is a part of cron. As you have probably already seen timeshift is capable of running scheduled back ups. To do so it relies on a package called cronie. “Daemon that runs specified programs at scheduled times and related tools”
Endeavouros is basically a vanilla archlinux install with some nice features added to get you up and running quickly and make it more new user friendly. As such it has a very minimal amount of packages installed. Timeshift is an AUR package as is not in the archlinux official repositories. If you install packages from the AUR you will run into issues like this from time to time.
