Installation stuck at "failed retrieving file 'core.db' mirror.xyx.ab"

I'm trying to install arch on virtual box (latest) using the latest ISO but it can't reach any mirrors. It was pretty easy to setup the partitions and mount it all but when I try to install the packages using "pacstrap /mnt base linux linux-firmware" it just gets stuck at "Synchronizing package databases..." and ends up with "failed retrieving file 'core.db' mirror.xyx.abc". View image for more details please.

Refresh your mirror list using Reflector. See here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Reflector

How about pinging the mirrors?  And compare `ping -6` and `ping -4` for the mirrors.
