error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

I saw another thread solved with the same title. I have similar symptoms, but slightly different. I imagine there is some variation to my problem, so I started a new thread rather than reanimating a zombie.

Still quite in the learning process with Arch.

I've had this broken pacman problem for over a week now. It started as just a problem of unable to get pacman upgraded, but then I must have followed the wrong advice in another thread, uninstalled pacman, and reinstalled it wrong. I tried downloading the tarball from the repos and installing it with ./configure make make install, and I am guessing it all went to local instead of root.

Result;

error: no usable package repositories configured.

Should I have used

./configure --prefix=/

?

I found what I thought was a simple fix to reinstall pacman in another thread:

sudo tar -xvpf pacman-3.5.1-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz -C / --exclude .PKGINFO --exclude .INSTALL

but the result of sudo pacman -Syy is still

error: no usable package repositories configured.

The following is some of what I found in this thread I see:

 Root      : /
Conf File : /usr/local/etc/pacman.conf
DB Path   : /usr/local/var/lib/pacman/
Cache Dirs: /usr/local/var/cache/pacman/pkg/  
Lock File : /usr/local/var/lib/pacman/db.lck
Log File  : /usr/local/var/log/pacman.log
Targets   : None

Not installed to root?

which pacman
/usr/local/bin/pacman

This confirms not installed to root?

Furthermore,

sudo pacman -Qil pacman
Password: 
error: package "pacman" not found
/usr/local/bin/pacman -Qil pacman
error: package "pacman" not found

What does this tell me?

I am guessing there are several problems.

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

Well, you should have taken the configure options out of the pacman PKGBUILD from ABS:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --enable-doc

Recompile with those options. You don't even need to install, just run it from the built directory (binary will be $buildroot/src/pacman/pacman) and reinstall the binary pacman package.

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

Your confidence in my competence is generous.

Is $buildroot/src/pacman/pacman the directory I originally ran ./configure...?

Wait! Don't answer yet! My brain is starting to stir...

No, false alarm. Still confused.

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

lol.

$buildroot would be where you ran the ./configure from.

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

Okay, I ran the ./configure, make, and make install, but I realize you said I don't even need to install.

Resulting in;

 sudo pacman -Syy
error: no usable package repositories configured.

But again, re-reading your instructions, "and reinstall the binary pacman package" reminds me I am still not familiar enough with this process to understand this part.

What am I missing?

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

You need to run the built pacman binary, notthe one that's on your system... from where you ran configure/make:

./src/pacman/pacman -Syu pacman

Which will probably give you the same prompt that lead you to following aforementioned bad advice... remove whatever it is that's causing the conflict (not pacman).

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

I too have this same issue. However i could install and update/upgrade packages from kpackagekit. I tried to run "./src/pacman/pacman -Syu pacman" after compiling packman package but the result is  "error: no usable package repositories configured.".

Before i had this issue i could not upgarde packman package because of confilicting package requirement (packaman-glib require packman <=3.4.0 and packman 3.4.x). Even now i am not able to upgade packaman through kpackagekit. Rest all working fine with kpackagekit.

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

For anyone with this pacman issue the following steps worked for me:

1) Grab the pacman 3.5.1 source from here: ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/other/pacman/pa … 5.1.tar.gz
2) extract it somewhere, I extracted to /tmp/pacman-3.5.1 and opened a terminal from there
3) run configure using "./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --enable-doc"
4) run "make"
5) replace the installed pacman with the latest from the repos using "./src/pacman -S pacman"

Cheers

Re: error: No Usable Pacman Repositories Configured

Ya i got installed by using

./src/pacman/pacman -Sdd pacman

After installation pacman said

>>> The pacman database format has changed as of pacman 3.5.0.                                                                                                                     
>>> You will need to run `pacman-db-upgrade` as root.

When i performed "pacman-db-upgrade" i got an error message

[root@arch pacman-3.5.1]# pacman-db-upgrade
==> ERROR: /usr/local/var/lib/pacman/ does not exist or is not a directory.

Bur i can confirm that  "/usr/local/var/lib/pacman/" is exist

[root@arch pacman-3.5.1]# ls /usr/local/var/lib/
pacman
[root@arch pacman-3.5.1]# 

Also i am not able to use kpackagekit any more. it says unkown error.

Why did you do that? Why don't you just simply removed kpackagekit, pacman-glib, update pacman with pacman -Syu? You running pacman from $src directory and skipping all dependency checks to install/update pacman? Your AUR kpackagekit+pacman-glib is incompatible with pacman 3.5, this is what prevents pacman from updating in the first place. Packagekit is now in [community] and works fine with kpackagekit from AUR. You messed up your system pretty good, congratulations!
