chroot: failed to run command '/bin/bash': No such file in director

I tried to chroot using "arch-chroot /mnt," and I got the error:

chroot:  failed to run command '/bin/bash':  No such file in directory

I'm guessing that means /bin/boot has been moved somewhere else.

Have you mounted an OS to /mnt ?      ie. mount /dev/sda2 /mnt

Yes, I wrote "mount /dev/sda4 /mnt"  Then I did the pacstrap and the genfstab command.

Don't paraphrase. Post the exact commands you issued and their respective outputs.

I tried to reinstall it using "pacstrap /mnt base base-devel linux linux-firmware sudo nano vim git neofetch"

And I got a message that said error:  ncurses: key "" is unown.

I was using a different installer, that wanted me to use archinstall, so it didn't work when I tried to use pacstrap.
