Most times updating the system works just fine but sometimes it can be incredibly slow. Usually it’s a single package but today even just syncing the extra repo was showing a estimated time of 86(!) hours. Speed was down to 3 b/s or so and I’m sitting there watching the show and I’m constantly thinking “Why don’t you just switch to another mirror?”
So, how do I set yay/pacman up so it switches to another mirror immediately if the speed falls under a certain amount (let’s say 20 Mbit/s or so)?
Thx, but I really hope it’s possible. I mean, would it indeed stay on the same mirror for 86 hours just to sync a single repo?
BTW: Is it always save to abandon the update process by closing terminal?
I believe so, you may need to delete lock file in case of error once you try running
pacman again though
As a - i sure hope so!
I guess it depends at what point in the update process.
While syncing the repos and downloading the packages should be fine I guess.
Once the actual upgrading has begun I am not sure it would be a good idea to abort the process.
Yeah, sure. I was wording my question wrong. I meant during download, not while upgrading. Thx for clarifying!
