What is wrong with OVH?

```
error: failed retrieving file 'gcc
-libs-8.3.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from archlinux.mirrors.ovh.net : HTTP server doesn't seem to support byte ranges. Cannot resume.
warning: failed to retrieve some files
```

@gudenau Looks like it is just a server that is only capable of serving whole files, and the download requested a partial range for some reason or another; try cleaning the local package cache and trying again, which may help.

Or perhaps just change to another mirror. I’m not sure what’s good, I just use rsync and keep a local mirror up to date. Which reminds me, I need to do a backup of it sometime soon. Much quicker to restore than to rsync the whole tree.

@SuperFloppies The thing is, when it is not this error it is because the download is less than 1B/s.

```

@gudenau Ah, then they are having some sort of trouble. Probably congestion, could be (D)DoS.
