Since you seem to be in snotty mode that i neither asked for nor
required. if the mirrors were up to date then this sort of thing
would not happen , So Needs must , I update this machine everyday for
several days i have been told nothing to do when i run "pacman -Syu"
so maybe there is a mirrors problem sorry but not my department.
If there is new stuff out there and it dont hit the UK mirrors i am in
the UK why should i use German mirrors .
