Pinebook Pro Can't Update, 404 Errors

I have a PInebook Pro and have tried for a couple days to try and update it, but it is saying there is nothing to update. GUI just says the system is up to date. I ran pacman -Syu and it returned:

:: Synchronizing package databases…

there is nothing to do

I am definitely connected to the internet as I am writing this post on the PBP right now.

PS Links adjusted because I’m too new to post links, but they end in .eu and .org.

If you are connected, then it can be something with the mirror. You can try
sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack to generate a mirror-list and then
sudo pacman -Syyu to sync and upgrade.

pacman-mirrors --fasttrack gave me an error:
pacman-mirrors: error: unrecognized arguments: --fasttrack

pacman -Syyu gave me:

So it still had 404 errors, but it downloaded something. Still nothing to update.

I tried pacman-mirrors -h to see if there was a similar option to --fasttrack. I found -g --generate which generates a new mirrors list, so I ran that which gave me similar errors:

Once again I editing the URL due to being new and not being aloud to post links.

You haven’t updated your install in almost a year… You should really update a rolling release model often, not just once a year.

Please see this old post as a reference:

This install is only a few weeks old, and I have updated several time since then.

It’s not.

What image did you install from? If it’s anything older than 20.10, it’s more than a few weeks old.

The change in mirrors, happened in March, so the install/image, is at least 9 months old.

I linked to it from the Pine64 wiki. Maybe that’s out of date?

Even when I follow the instructions in that post, I get 404 errors for the server.

Sounds like I just downloaded the wrong image, so I will just have to nuke, pave, and try again. Thanks for showing me the error of my ways.

Just edit the file /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.

Edit the first mirror to point to https://manjaro.moson.eu - don’t touch the branch/$repo/$arch - just change the host - then do a complete sync

$ sudo pacman -Syyu
