Error with databases, can't basestrap

When running
Quote
basestrap /mnt base base-devel openrc
it responds by saying it couldn't find any databases. I also get multiple down repositories (like five), but eventually get one. I have an internet connection. Are servers down? Posting this from my phone so sorry for the short body.

Man, this sucks. I'll probably just install normal arch if I don't get any activity.

Did you check the  pacman.conf? At least the older iso has conflicting repos enabled at once.

The repos on pacman.conf ever since August of 2017 have been the same, what has changed is testing renamed to gremlins.
What you should be loooking at is mirrorlist (/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist) against the latest.

You should also check the arch mirrolist for updates (this is too long to list here) and choose the closest ones to you - 3,4 mirrors should always work.  extra and community are arch repositories, the ones before them are artix (system world galaxy).
