bbqlinux.db is not updating. Here's the problem:

$ sudo pacman -Syu

:: Synchronizing package databases...

bbqlinux.db failed to download
error: failed retrieving file 'bbqlinux.db' from packages.bbqlinux.org : Resolving timed out after 10000 milliseconds
error: failed to synchronize all databases (download library error)

Why is bbqlinux.db failing to download? 'Check your mirrors,' I see advised and so I do. The server hasn't changed in some time I gather. In /etc/pacman.d/bbqlinux-mirrorlist it's exactly the same. As it was absent in mirrorlist in the same directory and wasn't sure if it needed to included there for whatever reason, I added it at the bottom of the mirrorlist file too:

## I have to space out the URL here only because I'm not allowed to post links but it's in the file correctly.
Server = h t t p : //packages.bbqlinux. org/$repo/os/$arch

So, the update consistently fails, even if I dare to update the server with https (in lieu of the provided http) that it seems to resolve to anyway. Still fails.

I had to add a security exception within Firefox to even get there so it appears there is a "Connection not secure" and/or redirect issue that may also be contributing the the failed sync. It would appear the prescribed URL is a German one (de). I didn't find any URLs in the US, nor anywhere else. Why is that???

Please kindly advise what steps I might take to remedy the situation. I will likely simply comment out bbqlinux.db altogether for the time being.

Many grateful thanks in advance!

ADDENDUM: Following advice in Index » Announcements, Package & Security Advisories » BBQLinux pacman configuration, I ran the following command.
The URL is spaced out here for inclusion but is correct in file:

sudo curl -o /etc/pacman.d/ bbqlinux- mirrorlist [url ] h t t p : / / mirrorlist. bbqlinux. org [/url ]

What returned, instead of the bbqlinux- mirrorlist was this:

<ht ml>
<head><title>301 Moved Permanently</title></head>
<body>
<center><h1>301 Moved Permanently</h1></center>
<hr><center>nginx</center>
</body>
</ht ml>

502 Gateway error.
It's broken.
