[Solved] error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' during instalation

I'm having this error error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' for all mirrors of mirrorlist during intalation when I try to install "base" "linux" "linux-firmware", seems like the sistem can't resolve the names od the servers.  Actually I  have installed this three packages one or twice but after that other problem comes up, it's something related with keys PKG.

The iso image is not corrupted.

I have instaled Arch linux one time and nothing this happned before.

Anyone can help me.

Thanks.

I'm not been juvenile, he asked me if was connected to internet, I answered yes, and he said to me that  was not the question, of course I'm laughing...

what I did was this...

loadkeys pt-latin9

timedatectl set-ntp true

cfdisk /dev/sda

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1

mkswap /dev/sda2

swapon /dev/sda2

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

pacstrap /mnt base linux linux-firmware

And here is where the error starts   

error: failed retrieving file 'core.db'.

I think DNS can't resolve server names. I tried to choose mirrors near to me, DNS doesn't resolve the names, and when it does and all the packages are installed, I  have issues with the PKG keys.

Re: [Solved] error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' during instalation

The question was how, as in by which means, which utility did you use not whether you have a connection.

This also isn't the entire error, if you indeed have a working internet connection, there should be no issues in posting the whole thing: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Li … in_clients

No. He asked you how you are connected to the internet. I.e. provide information about the software used and possible network infrastructure.

First of all I would like to apologize for being so late, and also to apologize to everyone and especially Scimmia...  obviously I misunderstood your question.

The connection  is being made normally at home I am not in any environment that could result in this problem, the reality is that after spending the weekend I managed to do the installation normally, which did not happen on Saturday and Sunday. I think it would be a problem with DNS resolution. The problem is solved and the system is installed, again I apologize, and I thank you everyone who responded, thank you.
