Please don't paraphrase, https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=57855

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

I am sorry.  From today on I will respect the rules.  I did not know.

i type, for example:

Sudo -S alsa-utils

And the log says:

Error:unable to download package
Warning:too many errors from archmirror.it
Warning:unable to perform requested operation (not a valid URL for the server)

Is it possible that the problem is in the italian mirror? Should i change the mirrors?

Or your mirror config.
The problem isn't that "OMG you didn't obey! the rules!!!1!!".
The problem is that you probably installed and configured some bunch of nonsense-fueled garbage, courtesy of some italian dude.

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

Ok, i get it.
I changed language from IT to EN.
How can i see mirror config so that i can share the IO with you?

Edit.
There's one easy way to copy and paste the log on this topic? Currently i still haven't got the desktop environment

https://0x0.st/ has a breakdown of the supported posts, "man curl" is gonna tell you what "-F" means.

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

Forgive me but I'm a veteran of years of using proprietary systems like Windows. I'm not used to this kind of thing and I'm not understanding.
Can you give me a practical example of how to send you a command line output or input?

If I understand correctly I have to use the pipe if I want to send an input command, but I'm not understanding anything else.

I would add that I am still learning to speak English unfortunately.

I did. Literally, running the commands in #6 will post your pacman config, mirrors and the pacman output when trying to install alsa.

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

Because there's no such pacakge in the repos; Sorry, I just imagined the rest of the token.
Try "alsa-utils" instead, just as in you previous attempt suggested in #3

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

I tried.  she asks me if I want to download.  I say yes obviously but then the download gives some errors.  I then tried the second command in #6 but it says "curl: (6) Could not resolve host: 0x0.st

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

So you've no internet or at least no DNS, this has nothing to do w/ pacman.
How are you currently posting? From the arch system where you can't install anything?

No, wait

Currently i still haven't got the desktop environment

So the italian dude fucked you over - quelle surprise.

re-install arch, this time follow the installation guide, there's even https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Instal … (Italiano)

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

What exactly happened?  as I said in the other topic, in addition to receiving help, I would like to try to understand what happened so that I can become independent.  and possibly help other users in the future

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

You followed some idiot on youtube who gave you bogus instructions when installign the system.
What instrcutions, we don't know - ask the italian dude. He likely skipped over stuff or made false assumptions or the video was just terribly dated or he's a really mean guy who intentionally tricked you.

It frankly doesn't matter - follow the installation guide. It'll tell you how to configure the network when installing the system.
If you run into questions/problems with that, fee free to ask about them - we're not going to disect the pleaselikeshareandsubscribe nonsense of some dude - italian or whatever language.

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

Wait, if it's necessary i can connect to wi-fi. I did it during the installation. Should be useful?

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

If you want to download a package or upload a file, having a functional internet connection sounds incredibly useful to me, doesn't?

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

I tried to do the same thing with the connection but it gives the same results.  How do I check that the connection is working?

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

ping -c1 0x0.st

But "Could not resolve host: 0x0.st" means you don't have working internet.
You can test whether it's just DNS

ping -c1 8.8.8.8

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

In the first case it says

Ping: 0x0.st: temporary failure in name solution

In the second case it says 1 packets trasmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms

Re: I am not allowed to install packages from the mirror

Cause you have no internet.
You can try to ping the _gateway, but i'm not holding my breath.

Do yourslef a favor and re-installhe system following the install guide.
You'll learn a lot if you pay some attention.
