I deleted ati-dri package and redownloaded it. This time, without any timeouts 
and it still failed the upgrade with same error for the same package.

So I uninstalled ati-dri and xf86-video-ati. I have intel card and got all 
those extra drivers because I installed the whole group for simplicity.

Try again and this time it failed for gcc-libs. Delete, redownload and the 
error still persists.

and I don't think uninstalling gcc-libs is an option.

I also found https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/28014 but I don't think that can 
solely fix the issue. --debug is printing enough information or so I would 
like to think.

Pl. Help.
