Please always follow the template and paste the output of garuda-inxi whenever opening any Issues & Assistance topics.

In /etc/pacman.conf comment out blackarch repo. That’s a problematic repo and should be avoided by new linux users unless you know what you are doing.
Next,

reflector --country Germany --latest 5 --age 2 --fastest 5 --protocol https --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Change the --country Germany here with your own country name like --country Canada etc. Once done run,

garuda-update --skip-mirrorlist

Follow NaN and you should be fine once you comment out BlackArch. The Chaotic should resolve itself. I just did an update and had an issue with Chaotic, but chances are if I do another the Chaotic issue will be gone.
