packstrap /mnt base command error when using Arch.


I'm at the "install the base packages" of this guide. When I type in the # pacstrap /mnt base command I receive this error:

Code:
error: config parsing exceeded max recursion depth of 10.
==> ERROR: Failed to install packages to new root.
Any ideas what it is?

lsblk -f returns:

Please note, all UUID's are present but I'm just being lazy by not typing them out. If they are required, please say and I'll post.

Code:

sda1
sda2                  ext4                    *                      /mnt/boot
sda3                  ext4                    *                      /mnt
sda4                  ext4                    *                      /mnt/var
sda5                  swap                    *
