Hi guys, this time I write to ask something about pacman that i find unusual.
Happens that I decided to reinstall my Arch like 2 months ago, and since then pacman takes a real longer time that it used to just to sync the databases, to be more accurate this sluggishness presents not when the progress bar is downloading the new DB, but between DB downloads (e.g. it takes about minute from the time it finishes downloading the core DB to when it starts to download the extra DB.)...
Any ideas?
Thanks for the support.

Try using rankmirrors to set up a good number of the fastest mirrors for your location, for me this changes everything!
I live in europe so I first delete every other mirror in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist, then I enable all leftover mirrors and run:
rankmirrors -n10 /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist #-n10 to only output the 10 best, change this number to your likings
for several times and replace the resulting 'overall top-listed mirrors' list in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
Hope this does the trick for you too!
ps. You need python to use rankmirrors, I recommend you read the rankmirror man-page for further options
Well, it seems to me that this solved the problem. I had uncommented some lines at Czech Republic but live in Mexico, so that was lagging the pacman operations a lot. But now its fast as usual.
Thanks for your help
