I was a very happy Antergos user, until I discovered a few days ago, that Antergos has been discontinued. Generally I am a non-terminal user, meaning not a Linux geek. Here I am now and I have followed these steps to switch from Antergos to RebornOS:
I have followed the steps up to step 8 -> Install Reborn Updates and Applications (sudo pacman -S reborn-updates)
Now I don't really understand what is meant with step 9. What is the 'Desktops option in the application'? Generally I don't see that anything has changed up to now. How can I see that I have sucessfully switched from Antergos to RebornOS?
Another problem I have (since weeks) is that I can't update pacman to 5.2.1-1 because of some dependencies of pamac or so. Anybody know how to solve this?
Some changes (nothing serious) have been made since the writing of that note. Now you have to add the keys from the repository (before it was only one, now there are two, and explain how to do it in the link above).
Step 9 is to make sure you have the same files installed as any other user of RebornOS.
As for the error that indicates us, it would be important to have a copy here of it. What I recommend is, to be able to install pacman in its new version, that you uninstall pamac before (and also yay if you have it on your system). This can be done from the terminal with:
sudo pacman -R pamac yay
If you do not have yay in your system, do not take it into account, and remove it from the line indicated above. Then, proceed to update the system. Now pacman should update without problems.
Once the update is finished (if it occurs without problems), it will be enough to install the latest version of pamac available in our repository. This is done with:
sudo pacman -S pamac-aur
If you also want to use yay, you can also install it:
sudo pacman -S yay
If you have any other error, it would be best to indicate here what message is displayed on your system, in order to help you.
After year of using Pamac I personally don't recommend it anymore. First off it fails on performance ~ so buggy and slow. I switched to Octopi and uninstalled Pamac >> and the difference is night & day ...
I now spend much less updating and have more time to be productive on the computer.
