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 =$arch/$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

Looks like:

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

2. seems to be down, even though it still shows up in the official list of Arm mirrors.

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

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