• trying to update/ mirrors time out/ haven't used computer in a while


    Hello, I posted the day before yesterday, but once I got everything to update, I figured this issue would have been solved as well. It wasn’t but I deleted thread and when I click restore thread it doesn’t come back.

    …After having my monitor die and not using computer for a while till I swapped its hard drive out, I have the following issue.

    When I look for updates (yaourt -Syua)
    I get the return:
    :: Synchronizing package databases…
    error: failed retrieving file ‘core.db’ from mirror.umd.edu : Operation too slow. Less than 1 bytes/sec transferred the last 10 seconds
    core is up to date
    error: failed retrieving file ‘extra.db’ from mirror.umd.edu : Connection timed out after 10001 milliseconds
    extra is up to date
    error: failed retrieving file ‘community.db’ from mirror.umd.edu : Connection timed out after 10000 milliseconds
    community 2.6 MiB 4.64M/s 00:01 [#####################################################] 100%
    error: failed retrieving file ‘multilib-testing.db’ from mirror.umd.edu : Connection timed out after 10001 milliseconds
    multilib-testing is up to date
    error: failed retrieving file ‘multilib.db’ from mirror.umd.edu : Connection timed out after 10001 milliseconds

    how do I fix this? I’ve tried yaourt -Syua, -Syy, -Sy, -Su, -Syyu and clicking sync mirrors in packmanxg.

    I also somehow got rid of my pacman update manager/ software update when switching to PacmanXG. The gui that pops up letting you know when there’s updates. How do I get this back?

    You should check your mirrorlist. It’s in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

    You can generate a new one here:

    That’s pamac, simply install it again.

    Cheers!

  • Thanks! i fixed the mirrors, but it says I already have pacman 4.2.1-1 installed as well as pacmanxg4 4.16.3-3. and pacman-mirrorlist

    cheers!

  • λlτεrηιτγ, what you are looking for is pamac as Karasu said. Don`t confuse it with pacman…:smiley:
