US chaotic servers are giving me a 404

good afternoon!

i am attempting to reinstall all packages and i am receiving a 404 error on the last 600 or so MB of package data.
they are all on US based chaotic servers and they are all giving me a 404 error whether i am behind my VPN service or not.

i have already refreshed my mirror list once by choosing nearby geographical locations manually and then again by just selecting 'worldwide' both of which have had no effect.

here's my garuda itchy-fuzz

i am attempting a full package reinstall due to an issue with changing certain display settings.
i cannot open 'workspace behavior/virtual desktops nor can i change any display properties via 'display and monitor' in the system settings GUI nor does my system recognize when i connect my projector via HDMI and activate the connection.

the only thing i have done recently beyond full updates is to use 'Stacer' to clean up all the logs and cache files along with the package cache to free up some space.

thanks in advance for any assistance =-)

What command are you running to do that? Did you update the system first? You should definitely update before reinstalling all packages. If your database is not updated, that could cause 404s on some files.

i just did a full update a couple days ago, i'll do so again.

thank you!

edit: the command i was running was to clicky the GUI in Garuda Assistant =-)

edit2: running garuda-update fixed the package reinstall issue.
thank you very much for that bit of info regarding the 404 issue, i will remember that going forward.

as for the display issue i'm still troubleshooting and will make a new post if i require further help.

thank you all very much =-)

Glad to hear you found a solution to your technical issue. :+1:

On another note, sorry to hear about your itchy-fuzz. I however somewhat doubt Garuda was responsible for contracting this itchy-fuzz. Without more details it would be hard to ascertain the exact nature of this itchy-fuzz. If I were to hazard a guess, I would think this points to either a yeast or some other type of fungal infection. A non-prescription topical anti-fungal creme may help with this type of malady. If the condition doesn't respond to treatment within a week, then see a doctor as stronger prescription medication may be required to cure this affliction.

As a disclaimer, it must be stated that the Garuda forum can not be considered substitute for professional medical advice. Everything you read on the Internet must be considered as pure speculation unless authoritative peer reviewed scientific evidence accompanies any recommendation. Also, it should be mentioned that as always, your mileage may vary, and a small minority of patients could experience adverse reactions to any recommended medication.

Also try to be very mindful that these types of conditions can be transmissible, so try to avoid spreading around this nasty itchy-fuzz to others.

Forewarned is forearmed, and don't lose hope, these types of conditions are usually curable.

:rofl:
