GerBra has replied to the topic '[Announce] Mirror Status' to which you are subscribed. There may be more new replies, but this is the only notification you will receive until you visit the board again.

The message reads as follows:

Another massive out-of-sync "explosion" of US+EU mirrors.
Seems to be related with huge transfer during the libjpeg update.

So when doing currently a -Syu make sure you use an synced mirror to avoid getting not only the new libjpeg, but also other new packages which depend on libjpeg...
And if you switch a mirror: Don't forget to do a pacman -Syy
