Wait a few more hours until more mirrors are up-to-date. Previously
published unsigned packages have been re-pushed with a signature, a
mistake that has been made before. Now there is a checksum and size
mismatch between the details in the old repodata on the mirrors and the
new packages which they sync with until they are done. It will be fixed
as soon as they have mirrored the new repodata, too, which has the
updated checksums.
