Ok, I am sure I am doing something stupid so please bear with me. I am pretty good with linux but not that great with Arch. My LinHES box is the only arch box I own. In any event, I am currently on 6.04

Code:
$ cat /etc/LinHES-release
LinHES R6.04.00 (Laundrymat)


When I do
sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts

I get:
Code:
:: Synchronizing package databases...
downloading core.db.tar.gz...
downloading extra.db.tar.gz...
linhes-scripts package not found, searching for group...
error: 'linhes-scripts': not found in sync db


my pacman.conf looks like this:
Code:
[core]
Server = http://linhes.org/repo/i686/core
#Server = http://knoppmyth.net/repo/i686/R6/core

[extra]
Server = http://linhes.org/repo/i686/extra
#Server = http://knoppmyth.net/repo/i686/R6/extra


I'm sure it is something stupid, but any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
DoTheDog

Looks like you did change your repository per

Unless it doesn't like the comment line below.

tscholl, thanks for the response. I had the same thought about commenting out the lines. So I tried removing them and no change.

Is there anything obvious that I am missing?

So it looks like there is a linhes-scripts-7-20-i686.pkg.tar.xz in /repo/i686/core. and when I do a pacman -Q linhess-scripts I get
Code:
$ sudo pacman -Q linhes-scripts
Password:
linhes-scripts 1-77


Any ideas why it won't update? Anywhere else I can look?

Ok, so now I have run sudo pacman -U linhes-scripts-7-20-i686.pkg.tar.xz I get :

Code:
sudo pacman -U linhes-scripts-7-20-i686.pkg.tar.xz
loading package data...
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: linhes-scripts: requires screen

Screen Man page:

http://linux.die.net/man/1/screen

To get it:

Code:
sudo pacman -Sy screen

Ok, I may have a bigger problem.

When I do sudo pacman -Sy screen I get the same thing:
Code:
 sudo pacman -Sy screen
:: Synchronizing package databases...
downloading core.db.tar.gz...
downloading extra.db.tar.gz...
screen package not found, searching for group...
error: 'screen': not found in sync db



Also, when I do a locate core.db.tar.gz it returns nothing. Where are the db files supposed to downoad to? Any ideas why it doesn't actually download? or I can't find it?

[edit] I just looked in /var/lib/pacman/sync/core and extra and the directories are empty, is that right? or am I missing something?

[edit2] Also /vr/log/pacman.log only says :
synchronizing package lists

Ok, I feel a little silly. I just had to add linhes.org to a whitelist to my content filter...I'm using dansguardian and it was blocking it.

More of a note to myself, but after opening the exception in the content filter, I had to uncomment:
Code:
XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u

for it to work.

Hi,

I am facing the very same error message :

Quote:
error: 'linhes-scripts': not found in sync db


running the same LinHES version on my MythBox:

Quote:
$ cat /etc/LinHES-release
LinHES R6.04.00 (Laundrymat)


My /etc/pacman.conf being tuned to the right repositories:

Quote:


My 4G/HSPA mobile ISP, which the MythBox is connected with, is blocking all incoming IP connexions, with no way to workaround the barring; would that prevents Pacman from getting packages downloaded from Linhes repositories ? I hardly believe that Pacman does require ports to be opened for incoming traffic in order to complete its tasks.

Nevertheless, your note

Quote:
XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u


makes me consider that as a potential issue.

Thanks.

Two months later, I gave a second try to upgrade my LinHES box from R6.04. The error we talked about here vanished, with nothing on my side I might have done clever to work around it. Same ISP, same LinHES box; I just typed once again sudo pacman -Sy linhes-scripts.

The issue is solved, with no clear understanding about what went wrong first.
