    error: failed retrieving file 'antergos.db' from <mirror> error: 404


    when I try to update my system none of the mirrors are able to return antergos.db but instead return a 404 error.
    I’ve tried updating the mirrorlist using

    sudo reflector --verbose --country 'Netherlands' -l 5 --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    

    and the the generated mirrorlist

    cat /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

    Server = rsync://ftp.snt.utwente.nl/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
    

    all other databases are downloaded successfully(core, extra, community, multilib)

    when trying to update there are a lot more mirrors it tries then there are listed in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

    EDIT:
    thanks to both of you.(@Shryp & @joekamprad )
    I’m sorry to not respond/mark as solved, I was busy with school.
    I backed my /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist up and used the mirrors listed here as mirrors for the netherlands.
    I know this is not 100% safe, if any of you can provide any other way to generate official antergos mirrors I would appreciate this.
    for now I have marked this as solved since my problem is (not very good but still) solved.

    @jaap.aarts1 Have you checked /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist ?

    antergos.db is from antergos mirror shure…
    And will be downloaded from one of the mirrors inside:

    /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist
    

    The antergos mirrors are not supposed sorted by reflector, as i understand right…
    Also there are only few, and so it is not helping to get better downloads…
