I had already waited for quite a few minutes and I surely could not spare that much of storage.

So, I tried for an alternative given there, the mongodb-bin package. For some reason, it didn’t work for me. I tried the solutions from here and here. But no luck. Then, I came across this blog and it worked like charm.

Here is How to Install MongoDB on Arch Linux

Here we use MongoDB’s pre-built binary that skips the entire compilation stage, downloading a pre-built binary from mongodb.org, and packaging it with the necessary configuration files.

yay -S mongodb-bin

If there is any error like ==> Error: Problem importing keys. , then it can be solve by following code:

gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 27EDEAF22F3ABCEB50DB9A125CC908FDB71E12C2
sudo pacman -Syy

After installing the package. Start/Enable the mongodb.service daemon.

systemctl start --now mongodb
