download of 2 Libre Office updates extremely slow

Post by wpshooter » Mon Aug 19, 2019 9:51 am

There were 2 Libre Office updates available for update this morning.

The download of those 2 updates took almost 30 minutes and the download
speed was running at less than 1 kb per second (i.e. extremely slow). These
2 updates should have downloaded in no more than 2 or 3 minutes.

Was this speed problem due to a problem with the Linux Mint server ? Right
after that download I checked Internet speed and it showed as normal for my
connection which is about 5 or 6 mb per second.

Thanks.

Downloaded these updates this morning as well. No issues. Downloaded within a minute or so - as usual.

Happened to me this morning as well, I cancelled the d/l as it was ridiculously slow.
Tried again a couple hrs later and it was still slow but not as bad as earlier, finally got it done.
Must have been a server glitch.

It happened to me a few days ago. I simply (temporarily) changed the 2 download mirrors in Menu / Software Sources. Had instant FAST download speeds after I changed the download mirrors.
