I have included extracts from relevant files and outputs. It all looks good to me and am puzzled as to what is wrong. I read the wiki but nothing springs out as a solution.

What am I missing folks ?

Thanks in advance for help etc.

:hmm:

It sounds like the link RayMac gave, you either ran out of diskspace or you need to update your mirrors.

If your low on diskspace, more than likely your pacman cache is full. If you want remove every package except for the last version, run this command:
# pacman -Sc

I remember that issue from my time running Arch. It happened occasionally. I usually solved it by downloading new mirrors and running rankmirrors again.

Hm. I've been trying to run pacman -Sc once a month -- at the beginning of each month, so I'll remember to do it. Maybe that's often enough to avoid this problem, but I guess I'll find out eventually.
