Discrepancy between pacman-mirrors -i and https://repo.manjaro.org/?


I ran pacman -i on a brand new Manjaro ARM (Raspberry Pi 4b) Minimal install, as I wanted to select just one mirror for use. I got the results below. A couple of questions:

  1. When using the -i option (interactive mode), is there a way to get it not to show me partially sync’d mirrors?
  2. Is there a way to filter the initial list to a specific country? I assume -c United States?


pacman-mirrors only shows up-to-date mirrors for the system branch - check the man page for detailed info (Pacman-mirrors - Manjaro)

man pacman-mirrors

Yes you can set a country, a list of countries or you can use a continent

sudo pacman-mirrors --continent

pacman-mirrors uses the same status file as the repo web

The mirrors are sorted by response time - and the sync indicates how long time has elapsed since the last sync - the info is pulled from the status file.


If you want to verify that - you can use the –no-status argument and may get a longer list.


Please read this:

especially this bit:



Sorry, will be more mindful of this in the future.

Thanks for the info on pacman-mirrors.
