Raspbian apt mirror down? ('Failed to fetch raspbian.raspberrypi.org' during apt update)

Tue Aug 04, 2020 10:29 pm

For the past 5 minutes or so, it seems http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian has been down; I tried IPv6 and IPv4 from my house and neither is able to get a response. Downforeveryoneorjustme seems to agree: https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ras ... errypi.org

Specifically, I'm getting this error response when trying to update apt caches:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get update
Hit:1 http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian buster InRelease
Err:2 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster InRelease
  Could not connect to raspbian.raspberrypi.org:80 (93.93.128.193). - connect (113: No route to host)
Reading package lists... Done                              
W: Failed to fetch http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/dists/buster/InRelease  Could not connect to raspbian.raspberrypi.org:80 (93.93.128.193). - connect (113: No route to host)
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
I was so close to finishing up a little automation :D

Maybe I'll have to find an alternate mirror, or just give up for the moment and get some dinner!
The question is not whether something should be done on a Raspberry Pi, it is whether it can be done on a Raspberry Pi.

Yeah. It is down for both IPv4 and IPv6. Planned maintenance by the colo provider - "2020-08-04 21:00 - 2020-08-05 03:00 — Our Cambridge network will be at-risk while we replace a site router and migrate our transport to Amsterdam to be directly terminated into the new router. "

That isn't just a mirror though. 93.93.128.193 is the mirror director which is what sends you to the appropriate mirror so everything is down unless you manually set a mirror yourself...

In any case, it seems like it's back up now. Glad it was a short outage!

Yeah. Seems to be okay now. mirrordirector is back up. There is still 2-3 hours left on the maintenance window for tonight so do any updates/installs quickly in case it does go away again. I'm not sure if the times on their status page are in UTC or BST. Same 6 hour maintenance window again tomorrow night.

Those times will be UK local (BST).
