note: I am inside an Ubuntu installation chrooting into an Arch install
pacman -Syu responds with
:: Synchronizing package databases... error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' from archlinux.polymorf.fr : Could not resolve host: archlinux.polymorf.fr error: failed retrieving file 'core.db' from mirror.js-webcoding.de : Could not resolve host: mirror.js-webcoding.de ... error: failed retrieving file 'community.db' from mirror.kavalinux.com : Could not resolve host: mirror.kavalinux.com error: failed retrieving file 'community.db' from f.archlinuxvn.org : Could not resolve host: f.archlinuxvn.org error: failed to update community (download library error) error: failed to synchronize any databases error: failed to init transaction (download library error)

Hopefully the output should suffice.
I had just installed archlinux, but unable to run grub-mkconfig due to the binary not existing in the Arch install.
Thus wanting to install grub (via chroot) to make arch bootable (running
os-probe inside ubuntu does not detect the arch install) has its own issues.
I am not able to update my pacman repository database
