Boost.Python error in job "bootloader"

Greetings Manjaro Forum
i had a problem installing the boot so i deleted manjaro and installed it again but this time i tried to install the boot on the desk SDA to make manjaro the master boot instead of windows.
so here’s the error message ;

i tried to search in the forum but didn’t find someone with the same error message, sorry for being so disturbing :frowning:

Try using Manjaro livecd to boot. Boot the livecd in bios-legacy mode (as you installed in bios-legacy mode)
As they link says,

Do not boot up to live OS, but press ‘c’ at the menu and we’ll get to the grub prompt (grub>).

When booted up to Manjaro, at terminal,

sudo pacman-mirrors -g
sudo pacman -Syyu
sudo pacman -S grub
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
sudo update-grub

Good luck.
