Unable to perform system updates

Hello,

My system stopped being able to download python updates, and when it fails I can’t do any updates on the system.

See down below my system, and before that the output when I run pacman -Syyu

Please help and advice.

Thanks a mil man, very quick response too! That worked!

So, I’m not familiar with the command, but I’m getting the vibes that my mirrors were outdated, is it what it is doing?

yes something like that, this refreshes the mirrors and chooses the fastest five

It chooses and ranks 5 random up to date ones.
