It can take a lot longer than a couple of hours. For a large update (>30,000 package builds), it takes about four days to complete the build of all ports and pushing them out to all of the mirrors can take another 4 days. Some of the links are rather slow and error prone. Until the update is in sync on all official mirrors, no mirror may distribute the updated packages. There is a week-old 32,000 port upgrade that started 7 days ago. I expect it to be available very shortly. and an additional upgrade of about 5000 packages completed yesterday. It will probably be updated to all mirrors a few hours after the forest one is available. Another build of over 31,000 packages started about four hours ago. Look for it to show up in a bit over a week if all goes well. It's a big job. I believe chromium takes the most time to build at over 30 hours, though electron is not far behind. The build machine builds 16 packages at a time and it is not unusual to see half of the 16 slots have been building a single package for over an hour and many take >6 hours. Things like compilers, especially rust, with all libraries are especially time consuming. Then the compressed copy of the packages is a LOT of bytes and, for many locations with slow, error prone connections it simply takes days to move the data.
