ubuntu repository not working?

asked 2013-03-06 13:53:48 +0000

Is the ubuntu repository not working at the moment? I precisely followed the instructions on, but when I do 'apt-get update' everything I get is the message, that connection to cannot be established!

The IP address changed, but the DNS is not yet updated to reflect that. It will be fixed soonish.

How long does it usually take for the DNS to be updated? It's still not working here...

Hei Michael, I think something is wrong... it is down for me as well... $ wget -O - Connecting to (||:80... failed: Connection refused. ping/traceroute shows dns looks fine, but the server does not seem properly setup on port 80

EDIT: Seems to work now, wget -O - gets through.

I'd like to bring this topic up again, because the problem bruno.braga refers to seems to be still existing. Is there any new information on how long it will take to fix? For the moment I'm experimenting with the 4.4 version from the developer repo but I would not like to keep it that way forever...
