Pacman source URL?

I'll be working from a facility with restricted internet access. Where does pacman source its downloads from? Is it from https://sources.archlinux.org/sources/packages/?

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but pacaur sources its files from whatever repository is listed as the upstream URL, right? Often that's GitHub.

Thanks!

edit: Also, I imagine that the Arch package repository has mirrors. It seems the one I posted is served from Germany. I'm not exactly sure what Internet restrictions I'll be facing, but I imagine I could select a mirror if country-of-origin is a problem.

If you're using Manjaro, a list of all mirrors is at https://repo.manjaro.org.

You can check your mirror list with

cat /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

It'll print the mirrors you're using along with the url.
