Hello all, I’ve been a linux mint user for a long time, and I wanted to try an arch-based distro. However, I’m already encountering problems on a brand new install.
I can install manjaro just fine, and it boots correctly. Right away, I want to do an update. Everything goes smooth up until it has finished downloading all the updates. After the downloads are completed, it goes into a stage called “verifying integrity of packages” or something similar (this happens so fast it’s hard to see).
During this part, my screen totally blacks out for a solid 1 to 2 minutes. After that, the screen comes back on and it shows log in screen. I am able to log in again… but everything is seemingly corrupted. Most programs won’t launch, including chromium or the default terminal, and if something decides to open, it takes forever.
So, I manage to get the update manager open again and re-run the update. This time, once the downloads finish, I get the “invalid or corrupted package (missing pgp)” error.
This sequence of events happens every time I do a fresh install. I’ve tried pretty much all of the suggestions in the following page both before and after I attempt the first update.
If I try the suggestions from that page before the initial update, the same result happens. If I try the suggestions after the failed update, I can’t even install something like manjaro-keyring. Says it’s corrupted.
Does anyone know what could be going on? I am totally lost. Thanks!
