Error: failed retrieving file 'grub-theme-garuda-r25.21bdfb8-1-any.pkg.tar.zst' from us-mi-mirror.chaotic.cx : Maximum file size exceeded

Anyone else running into this while trying to do a system upgrade? Looks like the custom Garuda grub theme is either missing from chaotic.cx / has some error regarding a Maximum file size? Not quite sure what that means:

Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Some others reported a problem with the GRUB Garuda theme these days.
The error itself looks like a mirror or network problem, I don’t know the exact cause but it seems to me it has to do with the Clouflare R2 CDN.
I just checked the us-mi-mirror and the file is there.
When I get errors on those mirrors I try later or work around them temporarily disabling the CDN in /etc/pacman.d/chaotic-mirrorlist, I hope it works for you.


edit: next time, would you be so kind to post the inxi and use the code tags, thanks in advance.
