I am having trouble when trying to install new software via the Add/Remove Software app. It seems to behave until I select something to install and then it says it is syncing libraries (or something similar) and then hangs. Using htop I see that pamac is running at 100% cpu (or all it can get :).
I have been having issues with Bluemail (I’ve sent them a bug report), and was hoping to install Claw mail, but it just won’t get past the ‘syncing’ step.
This is a new phenomenon as I have used the Add/Remove app before with success.
I would normally say it’s normal since you’re installing something from AUR that CPU using 100% because it’s compiling. In your case it seems it cannot complete the process. Would you try these on terminal to see if it helps.
Thanks everyone, but I don’t think I was very clear – sorry. Bluemail is already installed – it has been my primary client for months – It has recently become unstable. I was trying to install claws email client.
I don’t believe it was compiling; it gets stuck on “synchronizing package databases”.
