I have taken a look at the mirror list on a newly installed Manjaro net install edition (from 2 days ago).

I reside in Indonesia and and the first mirror listed in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist seemed to point to
an arch repo. Deleted it before thinking of copying the link to report an issue, but it began as:

http://kambing.ui.ac.id/archlinux/

There were also $arch and $repo in that link, no mention of manjaro.

Just checking if this really is a manjaro repo or the mirror list is misconfigured.

Just do
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirror -g and it will rank the fastest mirror and set it up automatically for you. Doesn't always mean the Indonesia server is the fastest if you are in Indonesia, I'm also an Indonesian and my fastest mirror is not Indonesia mirror.  :)

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -g
Lists a proper manjaro repo for Indonesia. Must have been my mistake previously.
Thanks to all for replies and apologies for raising the issue.

Just do a
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirror -g from terminal and they will be automatically added into your mirrorlist. If you only want to sync from Indonesia repo then see the output of the command above, search for Indonesia (should be 2 mirrors) and add them manually into your mirrorlist by:
Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist Good luck  :)

If you only want to sync from Indonesia repo

In this case, the command is :

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -c Indonesia -g

Thank you for that tip, but I do believe you meant:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -c Indonesia -g
After I saw your post I did a bit of research and it turns out that command can
take a list of multiple countries separated by commas, e.g.:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -c Japan,Taiwan,South_Korea -g
Very useful. I am new to arch/manjaro world and so far I am really loving package management
with pacman, so versatile.

Oh, sorry, corrected. Have also a look to the -i option.

You can also use together -c and -i, etc...
