Keep getting "something went wrong." error on Arch

Hi,

I’ve been trying to use Balena Etcher on my Arch install to write a variety of images including (2019-09-26-raspbian-buster-lite.img or DietPi_v6.25_RPi-ARMv6-Buster.img) but I keep getting en error message “something went wrong. if it is a compressed image, please check that the archive is not corrupted”. I’m omn Arch with version 1.5.61 and I have gconf installed too. What am I missing to get it working correctly?

Hi could you please take a look at the dev tools console (can be opened with Ctrl+Alt+i) in Etcher and post error messages you see there?

I tried to open the dev tools console with Ctrl+Alt+i but no console is opening, what’s the trick with this? :crazy_face:

Hi, I just tried it here and it is Ctrl+Shift+I for Arch. Also you may see the menu of the application by pressing Alt only and you will find the developer tools under the View.
Thanks,
Zahari

I am using ubuntu 19.10. Having some issue.
Can anybody help here. Whats the fishy I am doing here ?
Can anybody explain the correct procedure ?
Or this is a tool issue.
There was no issue earlier.

Hi @stdcerr & @cpu_12 and welcome to the balena forums!

I maintain the balena-etcher package in the AUR (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/balena-etcher/) and have just pushed a downgrade to pin the package to 1.5.60 for now, which I’ve confirmed to be working. I need to investigate what’s changed a bit further, and hope to get to that by the end of this week (support for this package is “unofficial” and I do my best to keep up!). If you require the latest and greatest balenaEtcher, I recommend using the etcher-bin package: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/etcher-bin/ at least until this issue is resolved.

Please let me know if you’re still having issues, otherwise you should be forced to downgrade at your next update.

Hi @Johny, and welcome to the forums. This looks like a different issue, and there is a similar issue reported here: https://github.com/balena-io/etcher/issues/2859. I’ve reproduced this issue with the AppImage version on Ubuntu 19.10 running Etcher 1.5.68. If you use the deb version, then it works. You can get the latest deb version from here https://github.com/balena-io/etcher/tree/v1.5.68.

Please let me know if you’re still having issues.

@roman-mazur I’m not exactly sure which element you would like me to show you, the dialog modal-warning-modal looks l,ike this:

<div class="modal-dialog modal-warning-modal"><div class="modal-content" uib-modal-transclude=""><div class="modal-header ng-scope">
  <h4 class="modal-title">
    <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-exclamation-sign"></span>
    <span>Attention</span>
  </h4>
  <button class="close" tabindex="11" ng-click="modal.reject()">×</button>
</div>

<div class="modal-body ng-scope">
  <p ng-bind-html="modal.options.description" class="ng-binding">Something went wrong. If it is a compressed image, please check that the archive is not corrupted.</p>
</div>

<div class="modal-footer ng-scope">
  <div class="modal-menu">
    <button class="button button-danger button-block ng-binding" tabindex="13" ng-click="modal.accept()">Retry</button>
    <!-- ngIf: modal.options.rejectionLabel -->
  </div>
</div></div></div>

@stdcerr
I meant any error messages you could find in the logs console tab (no the elements tab).

FYI, there is another thread on forums where we discovered a regressing in AppImage distribution of the recent Etcher version, which will get fixed in the next version.

Ah okay,
I thought it wasn’t right. On the Console tab I’ve got the following:

|  ___| |     | |
| |__ | |_ ___| |__   ___ _ __
|  __|| __/ __| '_ \ / _ \ '__|
| |___| || (__| | | |  __/ |

@roman-mazur It looks like the same error that you posted…

Hi!

Thank you for the newest info. We will get back to you as soon as we can.

Kind regards

Hi. Looks like you are running version 1.5.61. Could you try either downgrading to 1.5.60 by reinstalling the package from the AUR, or replacing it with the etcher-bin package? Either of those should work.

Yes, great! I just updated my AURs with yay -Syyu and it succesfully downloaded and downgraded to Etcher 1.5.60 which works like a charm!
Excellent, Thank you!

Good to hear that Etcher works fine now @stdcerr : )

@stdcerr I wanted to circle back and let you know I’ve fixed up and pushed the AUR package balena-etcher, so it should be fully functional on the latest available version once again.

Thanks for the report, if you have any further issues please feel free to ping me on the package itself (here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/balena-etcher/).
