Looks like the ebuild or whatever it is called is fetching from a location that no longer exists? Can anyone please advise? Thank you.

It is normal for rolling release distribution.

In this case, you have older database and there is newer version of said package already available (19.11) so it is natural that old one will not work.

Before installing new packages you need to first update your system or at least your database.

To update database only:
Code: [Select]
pacman -Sy

To do update & upgrade
Code: [Select]
pacman -Syu

Be aware that partial upgrade are not supported, it might work but can also cause some unexpected problems.
Man is as good as his tools.

I booted again into the Artix system to update again and met with unexpected problems.

First, xorg failed.  No idea why.

Still in console, , ran the update (pacman -Syu) and then screens of errors that were cause by no internet connection.

The mirrors you used (evowise and rackspace) are Arch's and were outdated or you hadn't properly sync'ed the databases (most likely). As @SGOrava already wrote, partial system update is asking for trouble, especially for people not competent or patient enough for rolling-release distros, like yourself.

Good luck with your next venture.
