Problem with mirrorlist

Postby woody » Sun Oct 13, 2019 4:11 pm

I've been having problems with slow and aborted pacman updates for a few weeks. In my mirrorlist, the only mirror I had active was the GeoIP based: Server = http://mirror.archlinuxarm.org/$arch/$repo

I made all of the US mirrors active and ran rankmirrors, but it showed them all to be 'unreachable'. So, I tried each one in a browser and I found that all of them were accessible except for http://il.us.mirror.archlinuxarm.org

Looks like:

1. rankmirrors doesn't work (probably a lot of people already knew this, but I never tried it before)/

2. http://il.us.mirror.archlinuxarm.org seems to be down, even though it still shows up in the official list of Arm mirrors.

My guess is that the il.us mirror was getting hit by the GeoIP round-robin, and was stopping pacman from working. So, does anybody know what's up with http://il.us.mirror.archlinuxarm.org? Should it be removed from the mirrors list?

Ditto.

I commented out the geoip server and found that ca. and il. were unreliable after going through the US servers.
