When you install Arch by FTP, using the mirror, if you chose to keep the one you chose in the installer it puts the wrong path at the end of /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.
It works during install however.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start new install with /arch/setup
2. Chose as download server (almost at the bottom of the list)
3. In Configure System > Pacman-Mirror opt to keep the SAME mirror used for installation.
3. Exit install and reboot
4. tail /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and you'll see

Server =

instead of the supposed

Server =$repo/os/i686

This task depends upon
