Did you try updating mirrors? Just open the eos welcome app and select update mirrors.

Then update sudo pacman -Syyu

I updated the mirrors
This is the output of sudo pacman -Syyu

Looks like this Indian mirror is problematic. What did it say when searching and ranking mirrors, did it give you downloads?

Try editing your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist manually and remove or comment out the problematic mirror.
Run sudo pacman -Syyu again.

Ah, you got only one mirror in there? So ignore what I said above.
See @s4ndm4n post below.

No it just provided me with this mirror list

Welcome to :enos: forums.

You need to update your mirrors and don’t use mirrors from India. For some reason, they are very problematic.

From the EndeavourOS Welcome app or using Reflector Simple update your mirrors from “Germany” and “USA” they tend to work the best for the Asia region.

Also, update your mirror list once a month or once two weeks to keep the best speeds.
