Arch Linux won't update!
 
My Arch Linux can't update for over a few weeks now! It just says that everything is up to date and quits. But I hardly believe there weren't any updates, before there were a few updates a day!

I've been having the same problem. After doing some Googling I found out I should use the mirror list generator to generate a new /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist. I then selected a different mirror to use and everything started working again.

do you guys uncomment all mirrors for your country or just one?

I uncomment all mine and across 4 installs I get reg updates at least every other day

I do pacman -Syy && pacman -Syu

heres my /etc/pacman.conf for other mirrors

Somehow I didn't think of re-running rankmirrors. I just tried swapping one by hand. Anyway, it works now.

And I wonder when they will have KDE 4.5 available?
