Chaotic-aur failed to download

First of all I am beyond confused about this problem, but that aside i can't update the chaotic-aur.db anymore, which I was still able to do a couple hours ago, not even a restart between that... this comes up if I try to update with e.g. update and paru -Syu

i can ping said servers individually without a error, but a update of the list seems not possible, did i do something wrong and somehow broke pacman or is it just garuda again?

All the mirrors are failing for some reason. Try some alternates.

The default mirrorlist would work fine for this, only affects people with a custom mirrorlist.
Make sure to add cdn-mirror.chaotic.cx to your mirrorlist somewhere (doesn't have to be at the top) and it'll work fine.
The issue will fix itself after a while, just be patient :stuck_out_tongue:

weird, that did it, even tho i didn't touch the chaotic mirrorlist yet... anyways thanks for helping c:

Doing this fixed the issue for me, but every single package I've installed from chaotic-aur seems to be gone but is still in the GitHub packages repo (ie. firedragon, cmst). What happened?
