[Solved] All mirrors giving a 403 Forbidden error for heirloom-mailx

Hi there. I'm doing a fresh Arch x86_64 install with a default pacman.conf. When I install the base system with pacstrap, all the packages appear to install as expected, except for heirloom-mailx, which fails with a 403 on every mirror. I've poked around on here and Google, but I haven't been able to find any info on this sort of thing happening.

I wasn't sure if I should seek help here or post to the bugtracker, but I assume that incorrectly posting it here is less wrong than incorrectly posting to the bugtracker.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Seems like I can download the package manually from the package site with a browser, but not via something like wget. I suppose I can solve my problem for now, but getting that error on all the mirrors seems pretty odd.

Post your mirrorlist or create a fresh one and try again.


Edit: What iso are you using for the installation?

I was able to fix it by downloading the updated mirrorlist via wget. I don't remember the exact date, but the ISO I'm using is a month or so old, so I guess that's probably the issue. Thanks for the help

There shouldn't be any problems, since the package in question has been last updated ages ago: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sor … loom-mailx
Oh well.


Have a nice weekend with your brand spanking new Arch Linux install :-)
