Add/remove software app is not responding!

I just installed Manjaro Gnome, and the Add/Remove Software didn’t have any app. So I tried to Refresh database. But it hangs every time! Any way to solve this?

This might have something to do with your mirrors, does running the command in a terminal window solve the issue or if it does not, what error do you get back?
$ sudo pacman-mirrors --fasttrack 5 && pamac upgrade
more info on pacman-mirrors

You can try launching pamac-gtk from the terminal, and click on Refresh database, and see if the terminal outputs something.
