I am trying to upgrade my system. I am using a connection of 7Mb/s. But during the updates, Manjaro is using only 2 Mb/s of it. Its very frustrating. I love Manjaro but it seems I have to wait for a dacade only for a 700 Mb updates. Please save me from this disaster
Sound like the mirror you are using is slow compared to your connection. Have you tried another mirror?
Any way to change ?
This command should rank the mirror according to latency speed:
sudo pacman-mirrors -g
Note: latency speed is not the same is bandwidth speed. There is no way (that I know of) to sort by bandwidth speed.
Okay, I have used the command. Now ? Should I do something else ?
sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -Syu
To finish updating.
Loving the language of “decade” and “disaster” to describe a 2MB/sec connection. Mine at home is 80KB/sec. Just a chuckle.
About the same as mine then
You can use sudo pacman-mirrors -f3 to get the three fastest mirrors in your area.
sudo pacman-mirrors -f3
