I was trying to update my system using
pacman -Syu but it says
core.db failed to download error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' from <filtered> : The requested URL returned error: 403 error: failed to synchronize all databases (failed to retrieve some files)
I also tried connecting to other addresses using
curl -I https://linuxconfig.org but it would return
HTTP/2 403 date: Sat, 14 May 2022 06:17:21 GMT content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 cache-control: max-age=15 expires: Sat, 14 May 2022 06:17:36 GMT and so on...
even if I ping some address like
ping manjaro.org, it would get stuck and when I cancel the job, the full error message would be like this
PING manjaro.org (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data. ^C --- manjaro.org ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 9132ms
but when I
ping localhost, it says this:
PING localhost(localhost (::1)) 56 data bytes 64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.021 ms 64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.254 ms 64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.142 ms 64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.032 ms 64 bytes from localhost (::1): icmp_seq=5 ttl=64 time=0.034 ms ^C --- localhost ping statistics --- 5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4042ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.021/0.096/0.254/0.090 ms
by the way, internet connectivity is working in browsers and other GUI based programs like pamac-gui etc.(but pamac is not able to actually update the system, says unable to get core.db just like pacman, but it does show the pending updates)
I think it’s some network configuration issue, but I can’t figure out what is actually wrong.
Please let me know if you guys have any idea what is causing this problem.
I don’t know if I have explained my situation properly or not, so feel free to let me know if you need me to do another checks to get you better error messages to understand what is going on
Thanks in advance.
