The package manager could not make changes to the installed system. The command <pre>pacman</pre> returned error code 1

Hi Team!

Trying my first install, with OpenBox community edition, getting the following (dreaded) error:

All logs here:

To discard network connection issues I tried with an USB Wifi adapter and using ethernet on a third try, the error keeps triggering.

It is the latest version downloaded today: Endeavouros_Cassini_Nova-03-2023_R1.iso


Probably this issue: Installer tries to install AUR package with pacman

A hotfix was just released. Please report of any problems with the hotfix.
