Why is this so slow.?

I got a good Internet connection. Can I somehow stop this process or it’s too late now?

All the mirrors are apparently giving same speeds

Re: Why is this so slow.?

Why is this marked as solved then?  If all mirrors are giving the same speeds then either 1) you didn't actually / properly select new mirrors, or 2) you don't actually have a good internet connection.

Please describe exactly what you did to select mirrors.  Also please use a speed test service to check your connection and report the speed / bandwidth here.

Re: Why is this so slow.?

Receiving errors currently, failed to retrieve file because operation too slow, less than1 byte transferred in last 10 seconds.
I am currently in a college dorm with reliable fast internet, did switch to mobile, results were same.

Based on https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Mirrors

Followed this command Get the mirrorlist directly from the website:
# curl -o /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist https://archlinux.org/mirrorlist/all/

And manually decided to find a good mirror after failing to run the following command
Finally, rank the mirrors, here with the operand -n 6 to only output the 6 fastest mirrors:
# rankmirrors -n 6 /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.backup > /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
rankmirrors taking too long perhaps?


Would like to apologise for not being able to format answers with proper structure, it’s hard to type on a smartphone.

Get ABBS
Run a basic speedtest on whether your connection to anything is actually any good.

Re: Why is this so slow.?

Is not an output of that script and you're not getting exactly 200 mbps.
Did you actually run a speedtest from the install iso or did you just look at the prospect of your ISP?

But if that's the speed you'd expect in that context, simply choose a faster mirror. The iso should™ run reflector anyway…

Re: Why is this so slow.?

I had to manually uncomment number of servers from mirrorlist file. Too many servers were performing bad and it took me some time to find a good mirror.
I have successfully booted and set up the arch desktop, however in the process, I have somehow messed up and now windows won’t boot up.

I’ll again resume my installation or likely would have to start all from scratch.
