[SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

I am getting those outputs ("... is empty, not checked" and "... is truncated") whenever I install a package with pacman. I give the output of system upgrade down below as an example. It is not causing any error for now, I can successfully install packages and upgrade my system but I want to know why is that giving me this output and if it is going to be a problem for me later.

I found some similar topics on this forum. It was suggesting to use pacman -Qkk and fix the packages one by one. I ran pacman -Qkk but I don't know really how to fix those warning it gave me.

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

Just to verify, you execute pacman -Qkk as root. Correct?

* Is the package for any of empty files installed? (you can check by: pacman -Qo /usr/lib32/libgsttag-1.0.so.0.2401.0 )
* If it does, better reinstall the package (since the files are empty) and if doesn't I believe you can delete the empty files.
* The packages that reports "size mismath", try to explicitly reinstall and see if error disappear.

I wonder regarding more critical files like the users' passwords (/etc/shadow)
* Can you check that the file permissions are correct?
* Can you calc sha256 sum of the file?


* Good formatted problem description will cause good and quick solution smile
* Please don't forget to mark as [SOLVED].

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

# LC_ALL=C pacman -Qkk 2>&1 | grep -v ', 0 altered files' | tee /tmp/broken_packages.txt
cat /tmp/broken_packages.txt | curl -F 'file=@-' 0x0.st

Then please post the link that generates.

/etc/shadow changing is expected as users are added and passwords are set.  Even if no users are manually added systemd-sysusers will add those required by installed packages.

I might have ran the pacman -Qkk without root privileges, so I ran it again with sudo. This is the output:

lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs: no mtree file
lib32-gstreamer: no mtree file
libavif: no mtree file
libheif: no mtree file
redland: no mtree file

All these packages have corrupted or missing mtree files so reinstall them in pacman's database first then reinstall them to fix the packages contents:

# pacman -S --dbonly folks lerror lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs lib32-gstreamer lib32-nspr libavif libheif redland
# pacman -S folks lerror lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs lib32-gstreamer lib32-nspr libavif libheif redland

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

I did as you mentioned but it seems like the same warnings persist. Here is the output of pacman -Qkk:

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

What is the output of

pacman -Qi lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs lib32-gstreamer libavif libheif redland

Edit:
Were any errors produced when you executed the commands I posted?
I had `lerror` in the package listed from `lerror: error while reading file /var/lib/pacman/local/lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs-1.24.1-1/mtree: Unrecognized archive format` which should have produced an error causing the commands to fail.

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

My bad, I forgot to add the output of reinstalling process. Here is the output:

Edit:
I managed to reinstall the packages one by one, first it gave me a lot of "... is exists in file system" error when I tried to reinstall with pacman -S. I go around of it by adding "--overwrite \*" parameter. So I reinstalled the packages as:

sudo pacman -S --overwrite \* pkgName

When I checked the pacman -Qkk again it says:

Happily the error messages have been removed. Also many of the "... is empty, not checked" errors (which occurs during any package installation) are removed too. But there is still few of them persist. Here is the output of my last system upgrade:

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

lerror is not a package, you should not be trying to install that.

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

Re-install folks and nvidia-utils and since you've synced the databases, "-Syu"
You probably want to re-check

sudo LC_ALL=C pacman -Qkk | grep -v ', 0 altered files'

after all of that,

sudo pacman -S --overwrite \* pkgName

Try to not do that - it was "required" because of the corrupted databases and restoring them (and later on the packages) failed because of

error: target not found: lerror

since, as pointed out by loqs and Scimmia, that's not a package in the repos (and also not in that AUR) and no re-installation was performed at all.
If you had correctly updated the repo packages first --dbonly and then w/o that, there would have been no need to steamroll over the system.

lerror is probably a custom package of https://luarocks.org/modules/daelvn/lerror ? You may still need to address that.

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman outputs "... is empty, not checked" on installation

I re-installed folks and nvidia-utils, and finally all of the "... is empty, not checked" messages removed. Thank you all for helping me to fix this and giving me insights on the problem. Everything seems fine right now.
