[SOLVED] Update's issues

Hi, haven’t used Mabox for a while and now I got following bad messages when trying to update:

  • Incorrect or corrupt database
  • Synchronization of databases failed

I tried also update manually in terminal but it also failed. :frowning:
What to do with it now? :o:

Check out this thread on the Manjaro forum

Thx!! I did as it was described in ‘Solution’ part.
It’s now (partly) fine but something looks odd:

  • when trying to use “UPDATE SYSTEM” from ‘Welcome box’, I got message:
    “Database synchronisation didn’t succeed” (just one warning)
  • when trying to update via terminal, it says it’s OK:
sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizowanie baz danych z pakietami…
 maboxlinux is up to date
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 multilib is up to date
:: Rozpoczynanie pełnej aktualizacji systemu…
 nie ma nic do zrobienia

I just don’t get it. :o:

To make sure everything is OK, I suggest the following two commands. (For “clickers”, they are also available from the right sidepanel in Mabox)

  1. Choosing fast mirrors
pacman-mirrors -f5
  1. refreshing the package lists and fully updating the system
yay -Syyu

It won’t hurt to perform this commands from time to time.
