SGOrava seems right.
The error message indicates that you have left the lines under [gremlins] which define the mirrorlist commented, so even though your mirrorlist on other repositories is valid for gremlins there is no definition of the location of the mirrorlist.
You must have uncommented the tag and not the mirrorlist below it.

I also recommend you to activate option "VerbosePkgLists" to see from which repository will package be downloaded.

Here is hopefully working pacman.conf for you (only fixed).
Code: [Select]
#
# /etc/pacman.conf

# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

#

# NOTE: You must run `pacman-key --init` before first using pacman; the local

# REPOSITORIES

#   - URLs will have $arch replaced by the name of the architecture
#
# Repository entries are of the format:
#       [repo-name]
#       Server = ServerName
#       Include = IncludePath
#
# The header [repo-name] is crucial - it must be present and

# The testing repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the

Again reading is fundamental! I didn't uncomment those lines. I was updating pacman.conf while working on others things thanks for all of the help
Edit: I was able to update without a hitch. Lesson learned READ, READ, READ! Thanks again!

I didn't get a mirrorlist.pacnew file & the mirrors on the list broke, so I can't update or install packages, is there a new mirrorlist I'm missing or something?

Here is the current mirrorlist:

## Artix Linux repository mirrorlist

# Artix mirrors

Server = http://mirror1.artixlinux.org/repos/$repo/os/$arch
Server = http://artix.wheaton.edu/repos/$repo/os/$arch/
Server = http://mirror.strits.dk/artix-linux/repos/$repo/os/$arch
Server = https://mirrors.dotsrc.org/artix-linux/repos/$repo/os/$arch
Server = https://www.uex.dk/public/artix/$repo/os/$arch

Also Artix *-testing repositories were renamed so check the first post in this thread.

If you seriously want help show your pacman.conf and mirrorlist (mark them in forum editor as code) and precise error messages otherwise nobody will be able to help you.

Ey thanks man, thought repos were broken since updates weren't working, turns out I mistyped them.

>:(  I 'm a little upset with myself as I didn't see this thread until today. I was wondering why I was getting 404 errors for the testing and world-testing. RIF reading is fundamental . Anyway I updated the pacman.conf so I should see those errors anymore.
edit: After updaying pacman.conf this is the error I'm getting

I just got a similar error on my server :(

Nope, wrong order, you don't need goblins repos at all.
Plese look at the OP for how it should be ranked.

the repos are just a local mirror i put up with rsync.  They are not in my config file.  I gues I was asking if the mirror was correct, and I think it is.

With the update to  pacman-5.0.2-11, please make sure you update your /etc/pacman.conf.

Your updated pacman.conf should look like this in the repository sections:

Code: [Select]
# The gremlins repositories are disabled by default. To enable, uncomment the
# repo name header and Include lines. You can add preferred servers immediately
# after the header, and they will be used before the default mirrors.

#[gremlins]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[system]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[world]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

#[galaxy-gremlins]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[galaxy]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

# If you want to run 32 bit applications on your x86_64 system,
# enable the lib32 repositories as required here.

#[lib32-gremlins]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

#[lib32]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

# An example of a custom package repository.  See the pacman manpage for
# tips on creating your own repositories.
#[custom]
#SigLevel = Optional TrustAll
#Server = file:///home/custompkgs

#[testing]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch

[extra]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch

[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch

#[multilib-testing]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch

#[multilib]
#Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist-arch


I've fixed this in the Wiki.

Regards.
