  • @anarch Open /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist and comment out the autodetect for your preferred location 👍 .

  • Thanks so much @Wyn , but before I saw your reply, I updated with no issues…👍

  • i prefer this way to getting the best mirror.

    reflector --verbose --country ‘United States’ -l 200 -p http --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

  • Thanks, I ll have both answers in mind, if it happens again…

    You’re right, it’s a very good way.

    Unfortunately, it updates only native Arch servers used by Antergos - the /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist file.

    It does not update additional native Antergos servers list - the /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist file. Didn’t find a way to update the latter automaticaly yet. Actually, didn’t even search for it :) .

  • @just ya i had the same thought about that 😕

  • Hmmmm…👊 😆

  • @just @megaman @anarch

    sudo rankmirrors -n 0 /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist > /tmp/antergos-mirrorlist && sudo cp /tmp/antergos-mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d

    :). Mirrors need to be all in use though.

  • @Wyn, thanks, mate!

    Excellent. Thanks.

    In theory, antergos-mirrorlist should contain one repo only - the native [antergos].

    In practive, after checking by hand 10 first servers from antergos-mirrorlist, all of them contain [antergos] repo only.

    Any Antergos system has some packages installed from this repo. At least antergos-keyring, for example. So it must be always in use on such systems.

    Hence, your method is perfect for updating antergos-mirrorlist automatically 👍 .
