[SOLVED] System upgrade speed reduced to a crawling state

Problem Description

Hello, I would like an assistance in solving the problem I'm having right now, see this screenshot for a visual representation.

I have a working Internet connection and I can download and browse the Internet with full speed, but when I try to perform system upgrade using pacman, my system can't seem to fully utilize my full Internet speed. This is the first time this has happened, before this, I can upgrade my system with no problem.

What I Have Tried

  1. Generate a new mirrorlist that's geographically near me.

  2. Generate a new US server mirrorlist.

  3. Restarting my system.

  4. Wait for a few days. Maybe this is my ISP's problem.

  5. Connecting to another network.

  6. Bear with what I speed I can get and perform a full system upgrade anyway. Luckily my system is pretty up-to-date, so getting all the new packages still doable.

Config/log files

US Mirrorlist
EA Mirrorlist
Pacman config

Conclusion

The problem still persists after all that efforts. What steps should I take next to troubleshoot this?

Not sure what you used to create those mirror lists, but it didn't check for speed.

https://www.archlinux.org/mirrors/status/

The top server in your EA list , http://mirrors.cat.net/ has  a mirror score  of 5 .
There are 4 servers in japan with a better score (not counting rsync servers)

On the us list, http://mirrors.acm.wpi.edu/archlinux/ is the top server with a score of 2.9 .
Lots of US servers have a better score.

I suggest you read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mirrors thoroughly, then use one of the tools available to select fast mirrors.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

The problem is already solved itself without me doing anything. I think the problem is caused by my ISP. I also read the article you mentioned. Thanks for your response.
