Hi, I’m not exactly sure what I did but I am now getting an error when I do a pacman database update. The error message I’m getting is
error setting certificate verify locations: CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt CApath: none
when I go to that file it is empty. One of the consequences of this is that when you go to a browser it refuses to load a page…
Any assistance the community can provide is gratefully received.
That file belongs to the
ca-certificates-utils package, which is in the
$ pkgfile --search ca-certificates-utils
ca-certificates-utils [Installed] 20220905-1 core
Common CA certificates (utilities)
So it should be as simple as reinstalling that package, while forcing all files to be overwritten:
$ pamac install ca-certificates-utils --overwrite='*'
Hope this helps!
Hi, thanks for reply but unfortunately it didn’t. The system said it already had the latest, but maybe for that reason it did not redownload and overwrite…
I’m now thinking might have to invoke timeshift…
$ pamac reinstall ca-certificates-utils
