pacman-mirrors is way out of date

I have two Raspberry Pi 4s. One is updating and the other is not.

I checked pacman-mirrors for both. The one that is updating is has a version number on pacman-mirrors of 4.16.5 the other is at 2.0.

Also the one with pacman-mirrors at 2.0, responds to sudo pacman -Syu with 'there is nothing to do'.

How do I get update working again? I assume my pacman-mirrors us wrong, how do I fix it?
