[Solved] Pacman fails to retrieve all mirrors after installation

Every time I try to use pacman I get this:

error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' from mirror-name : Could not resolve host : mirror-name
warning: too many errors from mirror-name, skipping for the remainder of this transaction
error: failed to synchronize all databases (invalid url for server)

Pacman tries at least 20 different mirrors before failing
I've pinged 8.8.8.8 and I have internet connection (ethernet). I also checked out other topics, but errors seems different

Open a terminal emulator and type

ping archlinux.org

Then hit enter...

ping: archlinux.org: Temporary failure in name resolution

This is a clean install (with vim, dhcpcd, and zen kernel) without any DE

Same problem here. A lot of key inits, populates and refreshes, but could not get the whole system installed properly. Two days on this... very unstable.

Will keep trying, never give up from Arch, but some help would be handy.

You edit your first post by prepending [Solved] before the title.

Unless your problem is also due to your network being down, this is a different issue, and you might be wise to start a new topic. Be sure to include the things you have already tried and which steps fail.

The exact commands you use and the full output of those commands are very helpful.

Cheers,
