Arch Linux: pacman – error “HTTP server doesn’t seem to support byte ranges”

During a system update from pacman -Syu – either the light went out, or the Internet was cut off, but the next time you tried to update, an error began to appear.

It sounds like “HTTP server doesn’t seem to support byte ranges. Cannot resume“, and looks like this:

==> Retrieving sources…

-> Downloading clightd-5.6.tar.gz…

curl: (33) HTTP server doesn’t seem to support byte ranges. Cannot resume.

==> ERROR: Failure while downloading


-> error making: clightd

Actually, we see that the problem with loading Clightd/archive/5.6.tar.gz – look for the file locally in the cache, where it should be loaded:

find /home/ -name clightd-5.6.tar.gz*


Pay attention to .part at the end of the name – the file simply did not download.
