Half of garuda and chaotic mirrors fails in Russia

Every time time, I update the system, I get

error: failed retrieving file 'garuda.db' from cdn-mirror.chaotic.cx : URL rejected: Malformed input to a URL function

Same with e.g. paru -S chaotic-aur/chatgpt-desktop-bin:

I tried searching about the issue but in all similar cases the problem was that the mirror was gone.
Typing these addresses in browser redirects to aur.chaotic.cx
Previously the error was Connection reset by peer instead but I don’t remember how long ago it started and how many mirrors were affected.

Also, I, unfortunately, live in ruzzia, which may be the cause of the issue.
I use zapret to circumvent the censorship and it works.
sudo systemctl stop zapret.service doesn’t fix the issue, so I guess, zapret doesn’t cause it.

I can only say upd work fine here.

Try changing your DNS server.

I don’t fully understand.

upd prints the same errors twice (after syncronizing databases and before refreshing mirrorlists, then after second syncronizing).

paru and upd does update successfully at the end with these errors, I just want to figure out why half of the mirrors don’t work.

Use

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

Use the country you like.

I changed from cloudfalare to google, restarted the service, checked it said google in systemctl status, but it didn’t fix the issue.

Btw, I use dnscrypt-proxy, maybe I should have mentioned it. Here is my /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml (I removed all comments and most of the default entries, because the default config file is very long):

# server_names = ['cloudflare', 'cloudflare-ipv6']
server_names = ['google', 'google-ipv6']

# listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:53']
listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:53', '[::1]:53']

ipv4_servers = true
ipv6_servers = false
dnscrypt_servers = false
doh_servers = true
odoh_servers = false
require_dnssec = true
require_nolog = true
require_nofilter = false
disabled_server_names = []

force_tcp = false

use_syslog = true

cert_refresh_delay = 240

bootstrap_resolvers = ['9.9.9.11:53', '8.8.8.8:53']

ignore_system_dns = true

netprobe_timeout = 60
netprobe_address = '9.9.9.9:53'

[local_doh]

listen_addresses = ['127.0.0.1:3000']
path = '/dns-query'

cert_file = "/var/lib/dnscrypt-proxy/localhost+2.pem"
cert_key_file = "/var/lib/dnscrypt-proxy/localhost+2-key.pem"

The problem is the garuda/chaotic-aur mirrors in /etc/pacman.d/chaotic-mirrorlist, not the arch mirrors in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist (although I encountered many mirrors in other countries that time out in reflector before):

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

 there is nothing to do

Maybe I could just comment out the faulty mirrors in /etc/pacman.d/chaotic-mirrorlist, but I want to figure out the problem that is causing them to fail.

upd is just an alias for garuda-update in config.fish, like update.

For all new user we wrote garuda-update to avoid confusion with
pacman -Syu if we only write use update in terminal :slight_smile:

I appologize, I figured out the probrem, while commenting out the mirrors in chaotic-mirrorlist to see which mirrors work and which don’t.
Turns out, some time ago, I commented out these mirrors in the chaotic-mirrorlist because of the either Connection reset by peer or Operation too slow. Less than 1 bytes/sec transferred the last 10 seconds errors, but added the hint commented out by me at the end. Later I commented them in, but forgot to remove the hints at the end, which was causing the errors.

Now no errors during syncronizing, just 1 error during download:

error: failed retrieving file 'waydroid-image-gapps-18.1_20240427-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst' from cdn-mirror.chaotic.cx : Operation too slow. Less than 1 bytes/sec transferred the last 10 seconds

But I think that’s ok, just bad connection to that mirror.

I will delete the topic shortly.

Don’t delete the topic. Keeping it around will be fine if someone else is in the same situation :upside_down_face:
