repo unable to clone platform/manifest

The repo tool kept hanging after cloning the git-repo repository. So I tried to clone the repo at https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest but that didn’t work either.

After running git clone https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -v I got the following output and it just hangs there

git clone https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -v Cloning into 'manifest'... POST git-upload-pack (gzip 86291 to 43096 bytes) 

but when I run git clone --depth 1 https://android.googlesouce.com/platform/manifest it is able to clone the repository.

Also I have a fresh install of Manjaro Linux, I tried cloning the platform/manifest on ubuntu server I had and it work just fine.

I am not sure what the issue is
