Description

There were quite a few 404s thrown during the latest system upgrade, requiring several retries to download packages with “pacman -Su” (no resync with repositories needed)

Examples include:

error: failed retrieving file 'ca-certificates-mozilla-3.78-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from redirector.parabola.nu : The requested URL returned error: 404
error: failed retrieving file 'libglvnd-1.4.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from redirector.parabola.nu : The requested URL returned error: 404
error: failed retrieving file 'luajit-2.1.0.beta3.r404.g3ee3c9cf-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from redirector.parabola.nu : The requested URL returned error: 404
warning: too many errors from redirector.parabola.nu, skipping for the remainder of this transaction
warning: failed to retrieve some files
error: failed to commit transaction (failed to retrieve some files)

next try immediately afterwards fetches the problematic packages, but stumbles on some others:

error: failed retrieving file 'runc-1.1.1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from redirector.parabola.nu : The requested URL returned error: 404
error: failed retrieving file 'mesa-22.0.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from redirector.parabola.nu : The requested URL returned error: 404
error: failed retrieving file 'gimp-2.10.30-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from redirector.parabola.nu : The requested URL returned error: 404
warning: too many errors from redirector.parabola.nu, skipping for the remainder of this transaction
warning: failed to retrieve some files

Requiring another pacman run, in which the packages which previously threw 404 errors now get downloaded.

some of the mirrors have been misbehaving lately - i noticed a nifty new feature the latest pacman (in libre-testing) actually tells you which mirror it was, that is out-of-sync

you can see on this web page, which ones are misbehaving
https://www.parabola.nu/mirrors/status/

i just removed some from the redirector's pool - that may help

if you simply try again, you should get all packages eventually - it will try different mirrors each time
- you're usually best to choose a preferred nearby mirror, and move it's entry to the top of your mirrorlist, leaving the redirector entries as a backup
