Problem downloading via curl

I am using an Arch Linux (Antergos). Since some weeks I have the problem that
downloading using AUR (arch user repo) does not work.

Today I tested it and encountered that the following invocations stalls
(though the time is counting up):

curl -O --trace-ascii -

   % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
                                  Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed

note: I have no file ~/.curlrc.

However, using wget the download works:

Do you have any idea what the problem could be? In very rare cases downloads work. But most of the time I am not
able to install packages from AUR due to download problems.

Thank you in advance!
