[SOLVED] Installation problem with pacstrap

Time:October 11
Advertisement
Hi guys, I am a new user of Arch Linux.
I wanted to try this operating system then I decided to install that on my Asus F200MA. Unfortunately, when I try to install ArchLinux, I get an error while downloading the base packages with pacstrap.
My HDD is made by 3 partitions:
/dev/sda1 - 51200 MB: This is the root partition
/dev/sda2 - 411690 MB: This is the home partition
/dev/sda3 - 4096 MB: This is the swap partition
After mounting these partitions, after using the pacstrap command and after the end of the download process, I get a few error messages:
error: failed to commit transaction (invalid or corrupted package)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
==> ERROR: Failed to install packages to new root
I really can't understand the reason of these errors, how can I solve the problem?
For formatting and mounting the partitions I used these commands:
# mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1
# mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda2
# mkswap /dev/sda3
# swapon /dev/sda3
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
# mkdir /mnt/home
# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/home
and then I used this command:
pacstrap /mnt base base-devel

P.S.: Can you also explain me the reason of the signature's errors?
Thanks for all
