failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package)...
I have installed arch using netinstall in virtualbox on ubuntu 12.04 x64, and now I am having some sort of headache with this pacman 4.0.3.
I am trying to install base Xorg packages using this command:
as given in the beginner's guide, it downloads the packages, but while installing shows this after checking the package integrity:
# pacman -S xorg-server xorg-xinit xorg-server-utils
It shows the same thing for whatever package I am trying to install. It showed some package signature errors before, but after I have done what has been said in this blog:
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package)
Errors occured, no packages were upgraded.
http allanmcrae com 2011 12 pacman-package-signing-4-arch-linux
it shows the errors quoted above.
Also, I would have pasted the whole terminal output - but it's on VM, and I can't get the terminal output inside that VM to ubuntu(so that I can paste it here), pacman giving problems seems to make this even harder.
I am not sure what I have messed up as I am installing it for first time, so I am waiting for some help. Thanks!
