[SOLVED] xorg112.db: Unrecognized archive format

Since today I cannot upgrade my system as I get the following errors:

...
error: could not open file /var/lib/pacman/sync/xorg112.db: Unrecognized archive format
error: could not open file /var/lib/pacman/sync/catalyst-hd234k.db: Unrecognized archive format
error: could not open file /var/lib/pacman/sync/catalyst-hd234k.db: Unrecognized archive format

...

I already searched the forum and found https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=135310 but the suggestions there do not solve the problem

> sudo  rm -R /var/lib/pacman/sync/
> pacman -Syuf

The relevant stuff in the pacman.conf file looks as follows:

[xorg112]
Server = http://catalyst.apocalypsus.net/repo/xorg112/$arch

[catalyst-hd234k]
Server = http://catalyst.apocalypsus.net/repo/catalyst-hd234k/$arch

Why I get the "Unrecognized archive format" error and what I can do to avoid/fix this?

The server has changed so all you need to do is replacing "catalyst.apocalypsus.net" with "catalyst.wirephire.com".
