[Stable Update] 2021-09-16: Nothing to do?

I’ve read about [Stable Update] 2021-09-16 and up to now there is no red flag on my system. So I fired

$ pamac checkupdates -a
System is up-to-date

After that

$ sudo pacman-mirrors --country Germany --api --protocol https
$ pamac checkupdates -a
System is up-to-date

Now what?

My /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist is actually (after the above command):

## Country : Germany
Server = https://manjaro.re/stable/$repo/$arch
## Country : Germany
Server = https://manjaro.moson.eu/stable/$repo/$arch
## Country : Germany
Server = https://manjaro.moson.org/stable/$repo/$arch
## Country : Germany
Server = https://mirror.alpix.eu/manjaro/stable/$repo/$arch
## Country : Germany
Server = https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/manjaro/stable/$repo/$arch

See Manjaro mirrors not updating

Thank you, I checked that in advance, filtering the list for Germany, you find that the ones I listed above are green. What am I doing wrong?

For whatever reason: I solved it now, using
sudo pacman-mirrors --country Germany,Germany --interactive --api --protocol https
Thanks @Fabby.

That doesn’t make sense. Depending where exactly in :de: you are, you should use:

--country Germany,Belgium
--country Germany,Austria

or whatever…

it’s the --interactive that allows you to pick and choose individual servers and if you just want Germany, then just use --country Germany. No need to specify it twice!
(East and West Germany have been reunited for quite a while by now… This Sunday is the celebration IIRC?)

Thank you @Fabby, added Austria for myself.
As I’m running the mirror-update from a BASH-script, doing some more system-maintenance, I did not use the --interactive so far. Any idea, why my first approach did not work?

No idea! except that most of the time, my ideas are generally better than the ideas of people around me and I don’t know why!
