Updating packages using pacman fails

Post by urmum-69 » Thu Apr 15, 2021 9:03 pm

Recently, when I update all of my packages using pacman -Syu, all of the devkitpro ones fail with a 404

error: failed retrieving file '3dstools-1.1.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from downloads.devkitpro.org : The requested URL returned error: 404
warning: failed to retrieve some files
error: failed to commit transaction (failed to retrieve some files)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Here are the relevant lines in /etc/pacman.conf

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Server = https://downloads.devkitpro.org/packages

Server = https://downloads.devkitpro.org/packages/linux

Any idea why this happens? This used to work fine, and I have not changed the setup at all on my end.

We moved the packages when we started providing aarch64 binaries, you need to add /$arch/ to the repo url now. See wiki/devkitPro_pacman#Customising_Exist ... an_Install

my dkp-pacman was v1.0.1, and I had to manually download the .deb for 1.0.2 and install it. This fixed my issues. I'm on Ubuntu and have no pacman.conf file.

I'm so glad SciresM updated Atmosphere and said "Atmosphere-libs was updated to use GCC 11 (latest devkitA64/devkitARM releases)." or I wouldn't have a clue until I was out to sea, where I would have no way of updating my laptop.
