  • Looks like the dropbox server for unity is either down or over its bandwith for the month. You can check this by navigating to the address in your browser. As far as the other one, whatever mirror you have setup for antergos specific repo must be having some down time. You can check your /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrors file and change the order of the servers if you don’t feel like waiting. Here is a copy of mine for reference

    \#\#  
    \#\# Antergos repository mirrorlist  
    \#\#  
      
    \# Autodetect your closest mirror  
    Server = http://mirrors.antergos.com/$repo/$arch  
      
      
    \# China  
    \#Server = http://mirror.bjtu.edu.cn/cinnarch/$repo/$arch  
      
    \# France  
    \#Server = http://cinnarch.polymorf.fr/$repo/$arch  
      
    \# England  
    \#Server = http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/repo.cinnarch.com/$repo/$arch  
      
    \# Germany  
    \#Server = http://cinnarch.limun.org/$repo/$arch  
    \#Server = http://mirror.de.leaseweb.net/cinnarch  
      
    \# Netherlands  
    \#Server = http://mirror.nl.leaseweb.net/cinnarch  
      
    \# Spain  
    \#Server = http://softlibre.unizar.es/cinnarch/$repo/$arch

    Are you using the [ayatana] repo?

  • Are you using the [ayatana] repo?

    Never took a close look at my mirror list file and not at my laptop…will check it tonight when I get back…

  • same problem here too:

    changing the server to the French one solved it
