[SOLVED] Octopi and "the internet seems to be unavailable" error - [Octopi 0.9.0-9 until 0.9.0-11 is broken ]


I have been using manjaro on kde for around 3 months now, and i love it. Octopi was working perfectly fine, until the last update on 9th of july. Since then octopi has been giving me the error

the internet seems to be unavailable

That error comes up whenever i make any transaction, checking for updates, removing packages, installing packages and updating packages, there might be other things that are not working but these are all that i have noticed so far. Strangely enough, i can search for packages just fine with no errors, and i did not modify anything in it except for adding trizen (the alien icon beside the search bar).

I have tried looking up online and came across this topic

Octopi internet seems unavailable

but it's more than a year old, so the solution suggested is not viable anymore, and i have tried updating the mirrors with no luck also. I don't put my laptop to sleep mode, so when i am done with it, i always shut it down, but i still tried rebooting and it didn't also work, neither did restarting octopi.

As far as i have seen, pacman works just fine, and i have been checking for updates and installing them from it. I have tried to install a package and it also works. I don't know where the problem is, my internet works just fine, and all applications that use internet also work normally except for octopi.
Is it a bug ?

Edit: missing words

just do sudo pacman -Syyu in a terminal that should work

Just tried it. Octopi was updated to 0.9.0-11. I restarted octopi, then tried to install, update, and remove, the error remained. So i rebooted and tried the same things but the error remains.

have you tried sudo pamac -Syyu in a terminal they are saying octopi is broken

yes i have tried it in terminal.
Oh i see, so octopi is broken.. thanks a lot for your help @rbrick49, i will leave the topic opened for 24 hours just in case, maybe there is a work around, then mark it as solved.

Btw, can you provide the link to the website that says it's broken please ? i want to keep up with the news :slight_smile:

just do a sudo pamac checkupdates and see if that works

just use the search option on top of this page just put in octopi it will answer you

Just saw the topic, it seems to be broken from 0.9.0-9 onward. I will just downgrade to 0.9.0-8.
I will mark the topic as solved then. Thanks a gain @rbrick49 really appreciate the help.
