I use yay as my AUR helper. Not sure about other utilities. If a source file has the same filename as a previous download it willnot* be overwritten.

So in the .cache/yay/fetchmirrors/ subdir I renamed the old file. After that was downloaded and its checksum passed :) HTH.

So it is - many thanks!

deadhead commented on 2021-01-04 12:50 (UTC)

Should be fixed now

df8oe commented on 2021-01-04 09:58 (UTC)

For all who want to fix this by themself: fetchmirrors is a bash script. Simply replace "www.archlinux" by "archlinux" at all places (5).

fetchmirrors does not work since a couple of days at multiple machines. I tried different countries but no luck.
[root@mymachine ~]# fetchmirrors -s 10 -c DE
[fetchmirrors] Error: Failed fetching mirrorlist from:

Thanks. Fixed

@deadhead the .SRCINFO file in this repository is broken, the dependency format is bogus. Please regenerate it with mksrcinfo. There should be one line per dependency, you can't combine them on one line like this.

Thanks Deadhead for bringing this back to us! Had an issue with the dependency curl pacman-contrib, but I got it worked out now. Yay wouldn't build it, but Trizen did.
