How to solve failed retrieving file .. from mirror

this is probably a stupid question but what am I am supposed to do when something like this happens while installing ?

It depends what command you ran.

If you used pacman -S package to install a package, you can use pacman -Syu package instead.

If you were doing a system update when you received that message, then comment out the first mirror from your list.

You might need to update your mirrorlist.

Assuming you have rate-mirrors installed,

rate-mirrors arch | sudo tee /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

In case you’re in India, this could help :point_down:
