Idk what "archlinux of docker~" is supposed to be, but if it doesn't have vi(m), I'd not bother to use it.

How's your overally network throughput?

Checking here:

https://archlinux.org/mirrors/status/
.
that Chinese mirror is listed under "Mirror Syncing Error Log" because of "Connection timed out".

Re: pacman stuck at downloading

I am wondering if it might be due to Chinese government response to current events.

Re: pacman stuck at downloading

geo.mirror.pkgbuild.com responds fine, so does https://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/archlinux/ (on a server in the AS4538 China Education and Research Network Center)
Given his nick and mirror choices, the situation could be different for the OP, hence https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p2070735 where I asked for the "overally" network throughput (I need to pay more attention to what keys make it to the screen wink

i got this for some reason, maybe archlinux for docker  could per-build the vi ~~

Re: pacman stuck at downloading

Seems OP does not have vim or nano installed. Strange but easy to fix, e.g.  by installing one of those text editors  or both.

Re: pacman stuck at downloading

That's gonna come down to "archlinux of docker~" thing…
It's however not that relevant, but the "easy fix" won't be easy if the OP doesn't get a usable network connection.

Re: pacman stuck at downloading

Wondering where the OP's distro comes from and how it was installed.
