Details

With the parallel downloader, we capture all error messages and report them at the end. If there is a bad mirror at the top of your mirror list, this can lead to many lines of output (particularly in the package download stage).

e.g.

$ pacman -Syy

We have discussed making the error more generic. e.g.:

error: failed retrieving file(s) from example.com : The requested URL returned error: 404

And then making the list of errors unique when outputting.

Also need to think is "error" right here? It is only an error when file retrieves fail from all mirrors. Perhaps this should be a warning?
