is this a problem that should be addressed?

Postby tsawyer » 16 Jul 2017, 22:58

I just downloaded Raspberry Pi 3(model B) version today and ran the standard update. the problem I ran into was when I attempted to install java. I was unable to reach the arch linux mirror to run 'pacman -S jre8-openjdk-headless'. I had to resync pacman by using 'pacman -Syu'. I did not have that issue under a different build (Raspberry Pi (model A/A+/B/B+)).

is this a problem for other things or did I just open up a can of worms on this build? ultimately I want to have the box host both rune and subsonic so I'm documenting the process and issues

Hi tsawyer,

I had to resync pacman by using 'pacman -Syu'.

RuneAudio is based on ArchLinux with many modified packages.
Upgrading the arch way will most likely break the system.

Hi tsawye,

try:
Code: Select all
pacman -Sy

Updating the database without upgrading.

The problem has always been the servers mirror list.
Only 1 main server that was enabled in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist somehow not working

Try this: [Tips] Fix packages download errors: Rank mirror servers
