Sorry new to arch linux / these forums, cant find anyting about the errors I am having.
I'm getting some errors in pacman whilst trying to install LXDE. I'm installing it in a fresh arch linux install in VirtualBox, it is fully up to date.
It can not retrieve two gtk packages files, in particular, gtk2-2.24.8-1x86-64.pkg.tar.xz, gtk-update-icon-cache-2.24.8-1x86-64.pkg.tar.xz
And the pacman exits as it has not for all the packages.
My mirrors are:
My pacman.conf has [core] [extra] [community] enabled.
A little bit stuck, anyone else having / have these issues or can anyone point me in the right direction to solve?

Those packages arrived 23: 14 on 16th, when did you last try a pacman -Suy? You could download them manually then "pacman -U" the package.

These packages have just been updated and the mirrors you're using may not have synced up yet. You should check the versions and 'Last Updated' info on http://www.archlinux.org/packages/
Have you run 'pacman -Syu' before trying to install new packages?
ah brilliant thanks so much for the help vacant + karol. The pacman -Syu did the trick. Reading the man it makes sense and I will keep my eye / bookmark the last update info.
