They might be working on AUR servers. Try this,

#curl -s "https://archlinux.org/mirrorlist/?country=US&protocol=https&use_mirror_status=on" | sed -e 's/^#Server/Server/' -e '/^#/d' | rankmirrors -n 5 - > /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Wonder if you try later on if it resolves itself. Might also be out of sync.

That s some good news @sammiev

I just use the Mirrorlist Generator to select my mirrors. One less package on my system.

I have almost 1900 packages, do you think that one more makes much of a difference? :)) I have reflector running every couple of weeks.

Found the problem, it was my VPN service.
Switching to a different server corrected the issue.
