I had already updated the mirrors before.

Any chance you could try that again with LANG=C sudo pacman -Syu and post that output?

Could be a conflict from an AUR package that you may have installed? Does pacman -Qo show any errors or no?

pacman -Qo /path/to/file

Edit: ignore this message, I’m still learning as @dalto pointed out :stuck_out_tongue:

Your mirrors are out-of-date. The current version is 0.14.5-2.

It is possible that was a packaging problem that they fixed.

No, not in this case. From the message the issue is that

Those are both repo packages.


@Balder Use the Reflector Simple app (should be installed by default), select your country if its not already selected, sort by Rate, Max number of mirrors 10, select OK, and then wait a moment while it processes the mirrors, then it’ll ask you to save the new mirrors list to your pacman.conf file and save and then try updating again and letting us know how it goes?

OK, have now updated the servers for the 3rd time and now it worked thx @ all :ok_hand:t2:


It is likely that you updated at precisely the wrong time to find that issue before it was fixed. :exploding_head:


Yep, the fix was made only 30 minutes ago:
