Maybe this will help:

cd /var/lib/pacman/pkg
for pkg in *; do bsdtar -tf $pkg > /dev/null || echo "$pkg is broken"; done

This is strange, for me, pacman always showed which package is broken
(and asked to delete it). Can you disable any ftp mirrors from your
mirrorlist ([1])? Could you post your pacman.conf?
