[SOLVED] Testing (chimaera) Repo Issue

Hello! For two months i haven't any issues with "deb.devuan.org" on my sourcelist.

Yesterday i noticed an anomaly that it fixed itself but, This morning it appeared again.

Here it is:

root@tokia:/home/nili# apt-get update
Get:1 http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera InRelease [26.2 kB]
Get:2 http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera/main amd64 Packages [7,917 kB]

root@tokia:/home/nili# 

I'm using this source list

✓ nili@ ~ $ list
# Installed Date 13-08-2020 (stable)
# Upgraded Testing Date 20-08-2020 (chimaera)
# deb cdrom:[Devuan GNU/Linux 3.0 (beowulf) amd64 - netinstall 20200526]/ beowulf contrib main non-free

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib
✓ nili@ ~ $

I only have a single line because i'm on testing. This line worked very well for two months and a half, Managed to stay on testing without concerns, as i said just yesterday i noted first repo error. As i look at it, alternative mirror lines it is suggested, so i ended up here
http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/mirror_list.txt

I haven't made any changes yet, what do you advise for this case? just to wait to settle itself or to change the list from one of the mirrors?

OS info:

Devuan GNU/Linux 4 (chimaera/ceres)
Linux tokia 5.9.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.9.1-1 (2020-10-17) x86_64 GNU/Linux
ii  linux-image-5.9.0-1-amd64      5.9.1-1                         amd64        Linux 5.9 for 64-bit PCs (signed)
ii  linux-image-amd64              5.9.1-1                         amd64        Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)

P.S. I took promptly a look at the forum search, but did not find any similar current (testing-repo) concerns.

Thanks for any advice
BR!

Edit: Marked as SOLVED with below tips.

Re: [SOLVED] Testing (chimaera) Repo Issue

Sometimes mirrors fail because they are in the process of updating. The solution, as you discovered, is to try again later.

You can check the status of the mirrors here: https://borta.devuan.dev/apt-panopticon … t-web.html

The far right column will tell if it's not finished updating. The column that tells how often the mirror updates might not be accurate.

Re: [SOLVED] Testing (chimaera) Repo Issue

@fsmithred thanks for your tips, I did not know about borta.devuan.dev that page looks so helpful bookmarked!

Currently "deb.devuan.org" is goin fine, just did the next update on testing. I will consider waiting a little longer also by monitoring apt-panopticon link.

Thanks again.

This is SOLVED!

BR!
