Only core.db is installed in the hard disk, extra.db and community.db have to be downloaded. To download these database, I will need to use Pacman to synchronize the database:
pacman uses the mirrorlist located in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist file.
Synchronizing repository database
Synchronizing and upgrade the system
Arch Linux advised to upgrade pacman first before downloading any softwares.
Set up pacman keyring
what it means is that I should generate more bytes to provide key randomization, so what i need to do is just hold on to the spacebar until it totally randomized the key.
This screen shows that the key generation is completed. I can now release my space bar…
