Pamac (Package manger) slow download

Hi All,

I hope this the right thread, recently installed endeavour and got everything mostly working I wanted ask why is pamac slow when downloading ?

Make sure to setup your mirrors correctly.

You can do that manually, by editing /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist, or…

Since you’re using Pamac, I’ll assume you came here from Manjaro, and then you probably know about the Manjaro script pacman-mirrors that automatically configures your mirror list. Here, you can use a similar tool, called reflector. EndeavourOS gives you a nice GUI frontend for it called reflector-simple.

For more info, see:

Run reflector-simple, select the mirrors you want, and rank them by speed, click OK, wait a minute or so for the tool to do its magic, and save the list (you will be prompted for your sudo password). Now, packages should download much faster.

I’m abit of noobish with this stuff I did a clean install to see how it we’ll it works for me as a daily driver.

Did you read & do per here?

It’s good advice. Just ignore the Manjaro parts now that you mentioned it was a clean install.


Everyone is a noob at some point, I’m still one :slight_smile: Feel free to ask if anything is unclear.

In the preferences make sure concurrent downloads is set to 0. That’s what I do and it’s fast!
