mirrordirector.raspbian.org not responding or very slow

Fri Apr 08, 2016 8:28 am

I hadn't fired up my RPi3 for a couple of weeks, and prior to doing a little tinkering though I would run apt-get to do any updates.

At first "apt-get update" stalled at connecting to mirrordirector.raspbian.org, an example of the type of error is:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get update

W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
When the command did successfully finish, the subsequent "apt-get upgrade" failed with pages of errors similar to the following:

Code: Select all

Is this something wrong my end or is something happening at the far end which is stopping things working as I expect them too?

Not just you - I am experiencing the same issue. Also IsItDownRightNow shows it as off-line as well http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/mirrord ... n.org.html .

That would explain it. I'll sit by and wait and see what happens then.
