Randomly not able to sync/retrieve packages from pacman, Yay, etc

I’ve refreshed my mirrors, changed different mirrors… without doing any new installations or updates, I can’t seem to even download something from the pacman GUI.

When I type:

sudo pacman -Syyuu                                                                                                         1 ✘ 
[sudo] password for myifeeizzag: 
error: config file /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist could not be read: No such file or directory

Im not sure what dumb move I made but it seems I’m fetching from endeavour OS!?

I assume a dumb mistake… easy fix, this time?

Check to see if your pacman.conf has been modified to look for mirrors in /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist. By default pacman uses /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.

Quick check:

cat /etc/pacman.conf

You figured out how to add an EndeavourOS mirror, you can figure out how to remove it. :wink:


To remove the added repo open a terminal and enter
sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf
Towards the bottom of the list you will see this entry
SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist
Delete it then save the file with CTRL+O and then close nano with CTRL+X

Yeah cross pollination of distros are probably not supported.

Hahah okay. I was going to put endeveor OS on Ventroy, or so I thought. I never actually caught how to even install it.

Doh. :slight_smile:
