Can't update + get kernel 5.2

I wanted to configure my mouse logitech g402. So I did " sudo pacman -S piper".
But I was getting error when applying changes, so I went to their github and it was mentioned that you need at least Linux 5.2. When I did uname -r I saw I have 5.17.1.
So I tried to update my system " sudo pacman -Syu"
But 2 things happen,
first of all, its trying to update to 5.17.2, how do i get 5.2? As this OS is based on arch, I thought that my system had the latest kernel, but it does not, how? Did I do something wrong?
Second, it gives error, saying failed to retrieve. I tried updating mirror from welcome box, but still getting same error. Internet is working.

TLDR:
How to get LInux 5.2?
How am I not on the newer linux kernel version?
Why am I getting error?

Thank you in advance, any help is much appreciated!!!

Annoyingly kernel names do not have zeroes in so:

  • 5.2 = 5.02
  • You are on 5.17 so 15 releases after 5.2

Basically you are on the latest kernel!

Thanks a lot.
To the people who reacted with facepalm, I thought 5.2 = 5.20.
I am not much knowledgeable in linux that’s why I am posting in newbie.

Update your mirrors, there seems to be a problem with them, at work, but @Elloquin can guide you, you can do it from the welcome app (IIRC).

I might be wrong but looks like your location is India…and that piconet mirror never works (saying from experience). I suggest you should update your mirrorlist and try again.

Thanks a lot, it worked!
It takes a little while to syncronize and start, but after that, gives me my full internet speed.

hello ,for the beginners, I advise to use our welcome tool which works very well, either for the mirrors or the updates

Like I said, I had already tried it, but like ishaanbhimwal said, that mirror is not reliable at all. But changing it manually with his command worked!
