archinstall with existing partitons

The instructions for installing with existing partitions is not clear.
I created a partition and formatted it to ext4
I selected it for archinstall to install arch there.

I clicked install and got the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/archinstall" line 8, in <module>

Let me know if you need any more info.

Re: archinstall with existing partitons

Moving to guided installer subsection.

Try to do so from the get-go in the future so that the script maintainer is informed.

Re: archinstall with existing partitons

I don't know if you have done this or not, but upgrading the archinstall package from iso command line before is always a good idea, the iso is I think a month old now, I had more success after running `pacman -S archinstall` and then running archinstall got me past the issue you experienced
