I noticed I hadn’t been getting any updates recently so I generated a new mirror set from the Arch mirror page, uncommented the ones I wanted, pasted them into
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist, and now a bunch of updates came through.
The last update before this problem was to pamac 4.3.0-1. The old mirrors generated from Cnchi seemed to be ok, none of them were commented out…the repos appeared to downloading/syncing upon clicking “refresh mirror list” in the pamac settings…I have no idea, there was simply no updates and it said the system was already updated. I only knew something was wrong because I knew FF 52 had come out recently.
There was 1 error I saw in journalctl, and it’s still present:
pamac-daemon[x]: Error: Failed to execute child process "pacman-mirrors" (No such file or directory)…is that concerning? Could I have been blacklisted by the old mirrors and not known about it (ghost throttling) since a 404 would theoretically come back as an actual 404?
