I'm using manjaro KDE and I have this problem where I can't update system, get any file from pacman while the mirrors are online and I'm connected to internet.

$ pacman -Fs

warning: database file for 'extra' does not exist
warning: database file for 'community' does not exist
warning: database file for 'multilib' does not exist
warning: database file for 'blackarch' does not exist
error: no targets specified (use -h for help)

$ sudo pacman -Syu

Help would be appreciated.

  • what architecture are you using? (uname -a) – Stefan Jan 27 '18 at 1:38

This is almost always caused by the fact that your network is not configured or connected which could be caused by user error such as not connecting the cable or a missing driver for some wifi cards.

  • The network is configured, It was working fine till yesterday. I've done alot of things to fix this but It didn't help. This error isn't something simple as network not configured or connected. I can download from these mirrors using curl. – Michael Corleone Jan 22 '18 at 14:17

    Try pacman -Syy ? – jdwolf Jan 22 '18 at 14:18
  • I get this when I use pacman -Syy pastebin.com/v3Yt1pN4 – Michael Corleone Jan 22 '18 at 14:44
