> I has just completely removed layman
Sorry, wrong thread :&
Comment 4 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2020-04-24 21:53:40 UTC
Is this still a problem?  Please try layman-2.4.3
Comment 5 Ryan Harris 2020-10-05 02:08:51 UTC
I ran into this same issue (using version 2.4.3) when I changed the default location in the config file. It appears that it occurs when the location doesn't exist. For instance I changed the location to '/var/db/repos/layman' but kept getting this error until I manually created the layman directory inside '/var/db/repos' and then it worked fine

Update: layman-updater -R resolved it for me.
Comment 8 Markus Giese 2021-08-09 18:34:18 UTC
"layman-updater -R" followed by "layman -L" fixes this
