Error in Mozilla repo ...

Postby alirezaimi on Sun May 22, 2011 10:46 am

Hi
I want upgrade mozilla from this repo (deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-4.0) ,But happend this error and not open this site (mozilla.debian.net/) :
Code: Select all
Failed to fetch http://mozilla.debian.net/dists/squeeze-backports/InRelease 
Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Why?
Thanks.

Had the same thing happen once. Just immediately tried to add the mozilla repo again and it worked the second try. Not sure if it's the same situation here. Was attempting to add the official mozilla repo. But couldn't hurt I guess. Just try to add that repo again and see whatcha get. First time in my case ... got a similar error. Immediately tried again ... it was successful in adding the repo on the second try.

I was having the same issues yesterday, figured I'd just sit tight until whatever got sorted out. Thanks for the link, now I know what 'whatever' is!

Sounds like ya wait a bit and try again ...

If a servers down, it's down ... until it's back up again. Wouldn't think it'd take long with folks like mozilla or debian involved ... whichever it may be. So check every so often and try to add the ppa/repo you're after or do the upgrade ya want. At least that's what I do with the situation, shrugs.

You would think it would not take long, but it has been at least two days since the blog post about the server move and still nothing.

It looks like http://mozilla.debian.net is back online, and with the new option to use Iceweasel from the aurora or beta channels. Finally a way to satisfy my itch for the next big thing out of Mozilla through an apt repository.
