Usually I get that when the mirror it's trying to access is down / not working. Try switching your mirror list around and then try.

Re: Can't syncronize pacman [solved]

Re: Can't syncronize pacman [solved]

have you tried using wget to retrieve the files? Uncomment it in /etc/makepkg.conf. You could also try pacman.static. It has the libraries compiled in.

Re: Can't syncronize pacman [solved]

Using wget syncronized everything but extra:

extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
failed to synchronize extra

pacman.static gave the same error posted above.

Is there maybe something wrong with extra repo??

Re: Can't syncronize pacman [solved]

Try downloading that file manually using a straight wget with no options.

Re: Can't syncronize pacman [solved]

Yeah, it downloaded well... so i guest there where something wrong with my local extra. Since i'm using pactools to "cage" pacman's databases, i decided to uncage it to view what was going on there. Here's the output:

root@myhost> pt-pacman-uncage                                      /home/martin
==> md5sum'ing the old database...
md5sum: /var/lib/pacman/extra.db.tar.gz.part: Input/output error
==> copying pacman.db contents back, note: the time needed to get a brew is now.
cp: cannot stat `/var/lib/pacman/./extra.db.tar.gz.part': Input/output error
==> unmounting old dbroot and moving new one in
==> md5sum'ing the new database...
==> checking integrity...
==> Removing old pacman.db

Then, i made a pacman -Sy with no problems. Finally, i caged pacman's db again and it's now working fine, as before.

I don't understand well why it gave me such strange error when the db was corrupted, i find that weird    :?

Thanks a lot for all the answers!!
