Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of trouble with pacman this morning. When trying to update my system or install packages, pacman hangs when 'synchronising package databases'. Yesterday everything worked correctly but today... ?

All I get is:

::Synchronizing package databases... 
core

then it sits and stops.

The pacman logs in /var/log/pacman.log just report

 [2022-01-13T10:23:38-0500] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -Syu'
 [2022-01-13T10:23:38-0500] [PACMAN] synchronizing package lists

This happens on three machines all with arch in my home.

Any thoughts? or similar happenings for others?

Cheers

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

Given that it happens with multiple systems in the home, I'd suspect a local network issue resolving the mirror name.  Do all three systems have the same mirror listed first?  Can you ping that mirror by name?  Posting the output with the --debug flag would be more informative.

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

Hi and welcome to the forum!

"then it sits and stops" sounds weird - have you checked your mirrors?

cat /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist | grep -v #

https://archlinux.org/mirrorlist/

EDIT: Got ninja'd - sort of smile

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

I can ping the repos, it takes a little but it returns.

I also updated the mirror list with the tool from dogknowsnx's post and get the same issue.

The output with --debug is:

and so on for extra, community...

Could it be related to the missing pgp signature? It says optional though.

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

So this is a stalled process and you posted some of the debug output, but not the actual tail, where is stalls?
I'd rethink that logic.

mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca is the first server in that list that actually responds for me - mirror.0xem.ma and mirror.cedille.club timeout, archlinux.mirror.colo-serv.net can't even be resolved

Please post the actual mirrorlist you use and consider the even superior tool https://archlinux.org/packages/community/any/reflector/

Edit: the god made an (ultimately irrelevant) typo ;-)

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

I can't see anything out of the ordinary here - could you try and comment out mirrors starting from top and use a 'https' one as the top mirror preferably and then try the update again?

EDIT: Let the god be your guide... wink

No, that is normal.  These haven't been implemented yet (thus the "optional" note).

I too would like to see the full output up to where it stalls.  And how long does it stall for (i.e., how long have you let it sit)?

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

So, I had left it stalled while I went and ran errands, it stopped being stalled but returned an error code 28 with curl. The curl command returned the file when run alone. I started commenting out mirrors one by one, always the same issue.

Replacing the url with the ip address of mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca eliminated the wait time, so somethings off with my DNS resolution, but there were further errors (posted below). The problem seems to be that I'm missing optional signatures. But that makes no sense to me.

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

The databases are not currently signed which is why the signature files are not present.  The databases signatures are optional and the command finishes correctly when using the IP address.

Ah, you're right. So I have a DNS issue to track down.

Re: Pacman hangs at 'synchronizing package databases'

I have resolved the DNS issue. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but pointing resolv.conf at the machine running my pihole sped things up considerably. Earlier it was pointed at my router which was in turn using 1.1.1.1 as a DNS server. I ran some digs:

dig @8.8.8.8 dig csclub.uwaterloo.ca - First query time ~ 187 msec
dig @1.1.1.1 dig csclub.uwaterloo.ca - First query time ~ 178msec
dig @192.168.1.3 dig csclub.uwaterloo.ca - First query time ~ 20msec

(192.168.1.3 - pihole)

But pacman mirrors respond quickly only having urls in the mirrorlist, so success... ?

seth needs to stop copy and fail because he wrote:

All pointers point there smile
