No updates for days (Chimaera), last time it was an issue for weeks...

With the amount of packages I have installed it's very unusual to not have at least one update in multiple days... Last time it was an issue where an attempt was made to optimize the download servers. Can anyone confirm that the updates are working? (This is happening on 3x separate systems). Thanks in advance. smile

Hmmm... the last update on my Chimaera system was 3/20. That is a pretty long time for testing... looking at my apt history, I've been getting something every day, sometimes more packages and sometimes less. This goes back for weeks. So yes, it seems like something might be awry...

http://deb.devuan.org/devuan/zzz-dists/ shows the last repository update as this morning so you should probably both share your sources — which mirrors are you using?

I'm using the same sources that I have been using since I've been on Chimaera, which is months now:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib
#deb-src http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-updates main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-updates main contrib non-free

Do you get updates if you switch to a specific mirror instead of the deb.devuan.org FQDN?

Even using pkgmaster.devuan.org I get "All packages are up to date".

Re: No updates for days (Chimaera), last time it was an issue for weeks...

I use ceres and have a what may be a related issue.

I spent more than 10 minutes trying to run an "aptitude update" on deb.devuan.org today which aptitude finally exited reporting a no connection error.  This is the worst it's been, but extremely slow updates have been happening on and off for a month or more. It's not been unusual for an update to take a couple of minutes to complete on a 150 megabit connection. Aptitude upgrade download speeds haven't been anything to write home about but have been at least around 1/2 of the normal speeds I have gotten up til now using Devuan. 

I've never seen updates take so long to complete in the approximately 20 years I've spent using first Debian and now Devuan.

There were no new packages in chimaera for a couple of days, and now there are. I think it's possible that there really were no new packages. Buster is in freeze, so the changes should be slowing down.

I think you're right - I got 10 updates this morning.
