Thanks. I will be brief with my comments.

You sent the error that you get. Thanks.

How did you get that error? what command did you type? where in the wiki is that? (this means "where is it getting stuck?")

In the future, please do this as the first command (before any other command):

export LANG=C LANGUAGE=C

This will allow me to read in English.

Good luck. Remember: we are users who are trying to help. Be patient with us.

Thank you to all for your help.
It seems that wiki is a little bit outdated.
I can't boot modified Artix any more.
I changed links to those that are valid, i think.
What I posted is translation of previous attachment.

The command that you sent (stuck command) is not here https://wiki.parabola.nu/Migration_from_Arch .

I changed links to those that are valid, i think.

English is clear. Not enough information to understand.

What I posted is translation of previous attachment.

What you posted (stuck command) is probably the command which gets you the error contained in your previous attachment (otput).

This is what I would try (I have not tried it myself, and I don't know if it will work; I'm just trying to help):
  1. Boot the LXDE live ISO without graphical install
  2. Open a terminal by (using your keyboard: [ALT] + [F2], then type lxterminal)
  3. Type
    ./install.sh
    
  4. Follow the instructions in the install.sh script, but don't do it all the way.
  5. Follow the instructions up to the mounting point
    • Consider using gparted when it shows up; do not erase your disk, just check the device, e.g. /dev/sdXX and close gparted. Then, you can choose it in the next step of the install.sh.
    • If you have a separate partition as /boot, mount it.
    • If you have an encrypted drive or need to do LVM mounts, just do that first
    • By now, your drive should be mounted, and the live system should have a fresh keyring.
  6. Open a new terminal in the same way (or a new tab), and run
    1. arch-chroot /mnt sh -c "pacman -Rddnus $(pacman -Qq | grep artix)". Remove Artix's packages. Adapted from Migration from Antergos . You may need to do it for each package: Manjaro way (use artix instead of manjaro).
    2. pacstrap -c /mnt gnupg parabola-keyring archlinux-keyring. This command will use the cache from the live system to install those packages (the integrity keys from Parabola's and Arch's developers). You may need to install archlinux32-keyring-transition as indicated on Migration from Arch , but that does not seem to be your issue.
    3. cp -vr /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist /mnt/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist. This installs the repositories from the Parabola live system into your system.
    4. pacstrap -c /mnt linux-libre

If everything went well, continue with the instructions on the wiki Migration from Arch .

Good luck. I hope it helps, but I do not have Artix, and I have never done this before.

The wiki may be old, but it may be that the instructions still work (not necessarily outdated).
