@Sebastian_Schöner  it depends on. 

1. Are you on latest version?

2. How many repo did connect?

3. How often those repo updating? etc

Normally on my PC it eat the same on sync period, after it works well

I have the version 3.3.8 and at the time no repos are connected, because i have downloaded the programm a few days ago.
