Hello,
my first thought is to meddle with mirrorlist and add change mirror to another one.
And after the change I would run full download of database with:
Code: [Select]
pacman -Syy

This looks like error in Arch, by searching on internet I found similar question:

what I did was remove the database altogether and reran pacman -Syy
maybe no the smartest wayt o do things, but for now, it worked.
