(Solved) new install on jfs filesystem fails with vi

I just tried to do a fresh install from the 201307 image and found out that the colon in the vi package will not download onto an jfs filesystem.
Sad since jfs has always been my choice since using mythtv package. It seems to work faster especially deleting large files.
I guess it's onto ext4 then.
Not sure if this should be reported as a bug. Just to inform smile

cheers

No need to reply, Just a late night blunder. All is fine.

I would report this as a bug.

FWIW, I don't even install vi, as I don't use it.  I have never tried this with a package group before, but what if you do "pacman -S base --ignore vi" (or with pacstrap).

What exactly happens when you try to install that package?

Here's a list of some other packages with the colon, see if you can install any of these:

Not a bug. Pick a better filesystem. We've been through this before.
