Hello, i've been neglecting my update for 1-2 month and i encountered this problem when starting full system update.
the output displays the error message multiple time, around more than 1000 lines outputting the same message as in the topic title.

did i screw something up ?

After ensuring your mirrorlist is up to date, just retry the db download: `pacman -Syyu`.
