I have Manjaro LXQT edition I have noticed a slow download so i checked my phone if I have a slow internet. And it seemed fine so i am confused why my laptop downloads at roughly 125kbps where my internet is at 26mbps.
You could try updating your mirrorlist via pacman-mirrors. At least in my case that helped when I ran into such an issue.
In case it is needed, more information on that can be found here: Pacman-mirrors - Manjaro Linux
@highflyer74 has provided a good link. I faced the same issue. I used a custom list of countries and it worked for me. I have used the following command.
sudo pacman-mirrors --country all --api --protocols all --set-branch stable && sudo pacman -Syyu
You may need to change the countries as per your location. But you can try these first.
If your speed problem is with the updates try this to set your mirrors with the fastest 3
sudo pacman-mirrors -f 3
If you problem is with downloads in general, please post your net info with this
Under which circumstance?
- Downloading ISO files ?
- General downloading ?
- Updating ?
generally downloading from chromuim and firefox.
It’s probably better though if you just have it use your country. Whenever I need to update the mirrorlist I always just run
sudo pacman-mirrors -c United_States
