Problems with ftp.debian.org?


Hello everyone. I came home Sunday night and tried to update/upgrade my Debian boxes at home. Neither of my home boxes can connect to ftp.debian.org. Trying to browse ftp.debian.org also fails. I did a quick google to see if it was down, but only saw archived problems from the past.

jim@jimsworktop:~$ sudo apt-get update

Is anybody else seeing this?

Whatever the problem was, it has been fixed now. It didn't work for about 12 or so hours.

Peace,
JimBass

I had the same problems this morning. Probably just server issues... Good to see it's fixed now.
