[SOLVED] no upgrade for several days

i haven't had any upgrades taking place for several days now.
here's what happens when i

sudo pacman -Syu

:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
local database is up to date

i'm getting from gigenet:
Server = http://mirrors.gigenet.com/archlinux/$repo/os/x86_64

anyone know what's going on?

Check your mirror on http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mir … ror_status

Yours seems to be outdated. Choose another mirror.

Re: [SOLVED] no upgrade for several days

I was having a similar problem. My mirror was out of date. According to http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … 92#p569092, you can use this website to see the status of your server. You can see which server you are using by looking at the file "/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist".

http://users.archlinux.de/~gerbra/mirrorcheck.html

I found out my server hadn't been updated in over three days, so I changed mine to another mirror that had been updated less than an hour ago. Then I did an upgrade and got lots of shiny new Arch packages. big_smile
