I have a local need to restrict the automatic update of endeavouros-mirrorlist: Normally I download the latest mirrorlist separately, every week or so, and manually inspect and edit out specific entries, and save, and then run sudo pacman -Syu, usually followed by yay -Syu and yay -Scc. Today, after starting pacman, I noticed that endeavouros/endeavouros-mirrorlist is being included near the top of the package list (old ver: 4.11.1, new ver: 4.12-1).
I update almost daily. I would rather that there was just a notification of my version vs any new version, so I could simply decide whether or not to abort the installation, and manually update the mirrors, or continue without any automatic overwrite of my version of endeavouros-mirrorlist. I need to know which mirrors are changing, and be able to restrict the list, before any updates are made.
I thought this automatic update of mirrors was only available when you execute sudo pacman -Syy, not -Syu.
I have read through Wiki entries on pacman and mirrors, and might have missed something. I thought maybe I could download the mirrorlist from the update button on the Welcome App first, and then maybe the pacman -Syu wouldn’t include it, but wasn’t sure if there was a better way. How can I best disable this automatic update of the endeavouros-mirrorlist? Are there other solutions? Thank you.
