I seem to be having issues with mirrors working one day and not another, and finding a solid complete list seems to be difficult.

Does anybody have a good mirror or list of mirrors they're using?

Hi Rob,

I was having issues with 404 errors on package dependencies, fixed it by running

Code: Select all

pacman -Syyfu
to do a full system update. Don't know why it works.

Also, check out this thread:

Hope this helps.

Have you checked that your mirrorlist is up to date in /etc/pacman.d directory?

If you have updated it may have saved the new mirrorlist as mirrorlist.pacnew. I just made a backup of the original and moved the mirrorlist.pacnew to mirrorlist. Just make sure you edit it and take the #'s off the relevant mirrors.
