I am actually using Manjaro for the first time via VM
As fresh start need to make some commands like :
‘sudo pacman -Syy’
‘sudo pacman -Syu’
but I encounter some problems I tried to give the maximum informations here throught this :
(tried to put all the logs but can’t post link tried to use a past link still cannot)
What Terminal shows and what are the Lasts mirrors I am using.
I have this follow error at the end
error: failed retrieving file ‘multilib.db’ from ‘LINK’ : Resolving timed out after 10004 milliseconds
error: failed to update multilib (download library error)
error: failed to synchronize all databases
Hoping somebody can help,
Thanks also for your time!
Do you have internet connectivity?
Yes I verified by the command : ping (websites)
try sorting the mirrors first:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu
Back after this command so the actual results are :
error: failed retrieving file ‘multilib.db’ from LINK : Resolving timed out after 10000 milliseconds
error: failed to synchronize all databases
Can you show us a bit more … like which mirror is in use ?
Can’t i am not able to post link but actually using a lot and all of them have this same message and can’t post also a media for now
The first thing you need to do is establish your active pool of mirrors using
pacman-mirrors -c COUNTRY,COUNTRY…
To find a list of valid COUNTRIES
Check the status of these mirrors go to https://repo.manjaro.org/. The must be up to date. If not, either try again later or add more mirrors to your active pool.
- Pacman-mirrors - Manjaro
- man pacman
- man pacman-mirrors
The active pool of mirrors is located at “/var/lib/pacman-mirrors/custom-mirrors.json”. I like to refer to “/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist” as the filtered run-time mirrorlist.
Thanks for you answer too, yeah I just tried it still the same Error, I thought i couldn’t reach the servers so I pinged thoses and every server answered I did your manipulations but still Resolving Timed Out after …
Error: Failed to update
Error: failed to synchronize all databases
here is a link to the errors :
It seems you are only querying ftp mirrors?
Lets try again with resetting everything:
sudo pacman-mirrors --country all --api --protocols all --set-branch stable && sudo pacman -Syyu
I will try it I will keep you in touch in few of what’s happening
here you go, that didn’t work
Details : bpa.st/7G6A
- Edit “/etc/pacman-mirrors.conf”
- Uncomment Protocols and change it to Protocols = https
- Save it and run
pacman-mirrors -c Austria,Germany,France
- Now run the commands that @cscs mentioned in #3
NOTE: Change the country list as you see fit. You can get a list of valid countries with the command
pacman-mirrors -l or the long form
pacman-mirrors --country-list. At this point limit the set of mirrors to a small number, just so focus can be brought to the problem.
My Snippet: pacman-mirrors -c Austria,Germany,France

One thing I don’t understand. I’ll take one mirror from your output:
## Country : Ukraine Server = https://fastmirror.pp.ua/manjaro/
I assumed this was the content of your “/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist”. But in my “/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist”, it looks like:
## Country : Ukraine Server = https://fastmirror.pp.ua/manjaro/stable/$repo/$arch
@thunder, in this forum (I searched for “resolving timed out”), found a solution:
There’s some hits in the archived forum too.
There is a wiki page, pacman troubleshooting, but unfortunately it doesn’t contain this issue.
@maminelahiala I can’t wait to hear what your final resolution turns out to be.
