        You didn’t mention what version of antiX you installed, so I will be making a guess.
        If running antiX 23.1 full, go to the Control Centre, Software tab, and open the Repo Manager program. Change your antiX mirror to something different. It seems that the one selected for your region is having problems, so switching your repo mirror is the best option.

        If running antiX base, edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list and replace the mirror to a different one, for example:
        deb [signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/antix-archive-keyring.gpg] http://mirrors.rit.edu/mxlinux/mx-packages/antix/bookworm/ bookworm main nonfree nosystemd

        You can see the mirror health in this website. Some mirrors may be out of date or the group maintaining it have some issue updating it. It seems to be that the Indian mirrors are completely broken for some reason, so look for something closer that is OK.

        In the future, when asking for help, please provide your system info to make those who want to help know a bit more how to guide you.

          Go to /etc/default/grub and make sure that
          GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false
          After, update grub so that it can find Windows
          sudo update-grub

                I’m running antiX Base and when i went to the Control Centre, Software tab, then i don’t get open the Repo Manager program.

                That’s because it’s only there in the Full version. You are aware that the Full version of antiX includes the “full list” of apps antiX has, right? Use any other version at your own risk… You’ll probably be asking here: “how I do I install this?” and “that”, and “that”, etc…

                IMPORTANT:
                When asking for help please always state what antiX version you are using, so people here don’t have to “guess”- help us help you, ok?

                  Like PPC said, you either install the antiX full version or you might install now software which turns out to be useful after all.Here it is
                  sudo apt update
                  sudo apt install repo-manager

                  The difference is sometimes underestimated, here’s a list

                    See the second image you shared.
                    Warning: os-prober will not be executed to detect other bootable partitions.
                    Meaning it is still disabled. Check again
                    grep "GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER" /etc/default/grub
                    It needs to be false, not true. You don’t want OS prober to be disabled. Change it to false as I posted previously.

                      Hello anukul.

                      Welcome to antiX Linux and the Forum.

                      I don’t know how to write in English and I send my texts translated by the internet translator. I hope you can understand everything. If your native language is not English, please translate my original Brazilian Portuguese text directly into your language with the help of internet translators and you will get a much better result.

                      Please read my real welcome in the Welcome to antiX Linux and the forum (antiX 23) and Welcome to antiX Linux and the forum (antiX 19, 21 and 22) thread.

                      Please learn how to ask for help here on the antiX forum by reading the threads I linked in my real welcome. Please note that there are 3 editions of antiX from series 19, 21 or 22 and 23 that have technical support in this forum. Each edition has 4 ISO images (full, base, net and core) on two different boot system types, SyVinit and Runit. If my sum is not wrong, at the present date there are about 32 different types of operating systems. That’s why you need to learn how to ask for help here on the antiX forum.

                      Intel Core i3-2370M bits: 64

                      You should start using the full 64-bit ISO of SyVinit-type antiX 23.1 instead of using the base ISO. The base ISO is recommended for people who have a lot of skills in operating the Terminal Emulator and who are already antiX Linux experts.

                      For now, sysVinit is still the default/flagship antiX release since it is the one most tested, and needs less ‘user’ input for example when starting services of newly installed packages (if needed).

                      The way Debian is going, it is likely that sysVinit will not get the same support (sic) as it has now so alternatives will be required.
                      Our implementation of runit is totally independent of Debian.
                      The latest work on s6 by community members and non-antiX users such as eric from Obarun is hugely encouraging and a great example of community collaboration.
                      It is still in its early stages, but expect s6 init to be offerred by antiX in the future.

                      Back to the poster’s question though, I agree with rocky that most users should use the sysVinit version for now.

Saiba que existem 3 edições do antiX, das séries 19, 21 ou 22 e 23 que possuem suporte técnico neste fórum. Cada edição possui 4 imagens ISOs (full, base, net e core) em dois tipos de sistema de inicialização diferentes, o SyVinit e o Runit. Se a minha soma não estiver errada, na presente data são cerca de 32 tipos diferentes de sistema operacionais. É por isso que você precisa aprender a pedir ajuda aqui no fórum do antiX. 

                      Intel Core i3-2370M bits: 64

                      Você deveria começar utilizando a ISO full de 64 bits do antiX 23.1 do tipo SyVinit ao invés de utilizar a ISO base. A ISO base é indicada para as pessoas que possuem muitas habilidades em operar o Emulador de Terminal e quem já é um especialista do antiX Linux.

                      For now, sysVinit is still the default/flagship antiX release since it is the one most tested, and needs less ‘user’ input for example when starting services of newly installed packages (if needed).

                      The way Debian is going, it is likely that sysVinit will not get the same support (sic) as it has now so alternatives will be required.
                      Our implementation of runit is totally independent of Debian.
                      The latest work on s6 by community members and non-antiX users such as eric from Obarun is hugely encouraging and a great example of community collaboration.
                      It is still in its early stages, but expect s6 init to be offerred by antiX in the future.

                      Back to the poster’s question though, I agree with rocky that most users should use the sysVinit version for now.

                          Yeah i do get your point , and dw the text was translated very well , to be honest , i wasn’t using this laptop from a long time, until recently when i wanted to access some old documents and pictures from windows, but every time i try to recover those files , it just crashes , or will freeze to a point that CTRL+ALT+DEl won’t work either , so i thought of installing a 32-bit linux distro in a pendrive, as linux wont be resource heavy and lemme access files easily ,but after installing the antiX base,i do see the possibility of using this laptop again, thanks for the good suggestion , once i’m able to learn to recover files from windows using linux , I might wash-off windows and use antiX full version.

                            The # symbol at the beginning of a line means “don’t evaluate the contents of this line”. It is generally used for writing comments inside files, but also “makes this line invisible” to the program reading this line. In this case, because it has this # symbol, this variable is not being considered. Please change it to
                            GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false
                            without the # symbol.

                              @anukul – you seem to be really fresh in Linux. Welcome! Here is a tip that will probably be very useful in the future:

                              Try to follow detailed instructions about editing system or configuration files to the letter, just like you would, if you were following detailed instructions about editing Windows Registry:
                              GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false

                              does really mean “GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false” not “# GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false“.

                              It’s not Linux being “picky” or “weird”- if you edit Windows registry and keep a character that should not be there on a value, it also would not work, right?
                              You may enjoy taking a detailed look at the unofficial FAQ’s, here in the forum, to get a feel about how do handle things in Linux in general and antiX in particular.
