In an effort to improve our FTP directory structure, the URLs for our package repositories have changed. Actually, it changed several months ago and most of you already have the new URLs.
Please check your
/etc/pacman.d/* files and make sure the server paths look something like the following:
Server = ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/current/os/i686
The old, incorrect version is like so:
Server = ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/current
If you are using the old URLs, update your configuration files or you won't be able to --sysupgrade.
