[SOLVED] ping: google.com: System error

Have installed Arch for multiple years, no idea what went wrong this time:

$ ping google.com
ping: google.com: System error
$ sudo pacman -Sy
:: Synchronizing package databases...
error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' from mirror.rol.ru : Could not resolve host: mirror.rol.ru

...
$ host goodle.com
goodle.com has address 103.224.182.209

Browser works, ping ip address works.

,,,

$ host goodle.com
goodle.com has address 103.224.182.209

You wrote 'host gooDle.com'.

What are outputs of those:

dig google.com
grep hosts /etc/nsswitch.conf

And check if this thread can help you.

Re: [SOLVED] ping: google.com: System error

If you have "wins" in nsswitch.conf, make sure winbindd is running.

Re: [SOLVED] ping: google.com: System error

No updated added "wins", that's a samba thing. The latest samba update now makes that change require winbindd running, though.

Re: [SOLVED] ping: google.com: System error

Thanks!!
Removing "wins" from "hots" in /etc/nsswitch.conf quickly solved it!

PS: Winbind seems to be running
