Pacman mirrorlist
Recently I have added the following link in the pacman mirrorlist /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist


And I know the packages are there at this link. For example I could open the link for extra repository and download the file libsigc++2.0-2.2.3-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz from the browser.

but when I do pacman -S libsigc++2.0

It downloads a corrupt file and later asks to delete the corrupt file

Its a 4.3 mb file but a 2.2k file gets download.

What can be done

here is not the place to report the problem... you need to report it to Arch

You need to install rankmirrors (python script). And run /usr/sbin/rankmirrors against your mirrorlist or its backup to locate nearest and fastest mirrors. Then run pacman -Syy to refresh your dbase. Any changes to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist require pacman -Syy.

Also you need to go to to check whether the mirror is properly synced.
