I think you're on the wrong track by suspecting iana-etc.
It's probably more likely to be a DNS, web proxy, or IPv4/IPv6 issue.
You could try
sudo -i pacman -v --debug -U https://mex.mirror.pkgbuild.com/community-testing/os/x86_64/lxpanel-0.10.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
to see if the extra output helps, but I suspect it won't.
Does the curl library take note of environment variables to produce
debug? I don't know.
So I'd reach for strace, given ltrace(1)'s apparent brokenness.
sudo -i env LC_ALL=C strace -fe %net pacman -U https://mex...
That way you can see the connect(3), etc., and the IP addresses
involved, plus what errors occurred.
