Bug #1107

My Parabola OS doesn't update packages

I tried to update GNU Parabola by:

pacman -Syu
 :: Sincronizando las bases de datos de los paquetes…
 libre está actualizado
 core está actualizado
 extra está actualizado
 community está actualizado
:: Iniciando actualización completa del sistema…
...el sistema ya está actualizado.

But there is no new update for days. When they exist, for my installed packages,into the GNU Parabola web: [[]]

For example:
I have installed libjpeg-turbo 1.5.0-1, but the new version found (libjpeg-turbo 1.5.1-1) is not loaded by 'pacman -Syu'.

Please help. :)

When I had this problem today, I fixed it by checking the Mirror Status page at, looking at the list of "Successfully Syncing Mirrors," and then making sure that one of those mirrors was the first/top one listed in my /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist file. At that point, pacman -Syyu found the updates.

I think this was explained in IRC.


A mirror is lagging behind. Whenever an update issue like this arises your local mirror list is suspect; compare it against
It could take us a while before we update pacman-mirrorlist, however the website is constantly checking for mirror status. At you can even ask the website to generate fresh, customized lists that leave outdated mirrors out (if you tick that option).
