Manjaro Architect installer error "Partitions must be mounted"

Hello, I've been trying to do a minimal install of Manjaro on one of my machines but I have run into a problem with the installer. Upon successfully mounting my root, swap, home, and uefi boot partitions and returning to the main menu and selecting any of the installation choices, I get the error, "Partitions must be mounted first."

I'm quite stumped. I've triple checked to ensure all partitions have been mounted, but the error persists. Any ideas? Thanks.

Are you doing the install as root from a boot up?? It ought to be trivial for the installer to remount, but not if you have a running system you want to install over. It will puke then.


installation, manjaro, mount, partition, partitioning
