UNEXPECTED DOWNTIME ON REPOSITORY SERVER

JULY 7, 2019

Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program. – Linus Torvalds

If you are attempting to update your AOSC OS, or have already experienced trouble downloading packages (wrong sizes and checksums, etc.) - we are aware of this issue, and are working double time to resolve this issue. We have just finished up our (long overdue) Winter update wave, and moving ~10,000 packages triggered some obscure bugs in our package scanning toolkit, p-vector.

  • TL;DR: we are sorry, and are trying our best to get our repository back in normal order.
  • To our mirror maintainers, we have terminated our rsync service 15 minutes before this news, and this should explain why the syncing jobs are failing.
