    Some will do that, but others like me are just upgrading from the latest alpha. We were on beta stage 2 days before it reached the public (because of the freeze period).

    We could also restore a Jaunty install and upgrade from there. All are viable options for beta-testers.

    Auto update finally completed with the exception of the new kernel. I guess I'll wait till tomorrow.

    I'm sure they are just hammered with updates from Beta downloads. It was rather funny to watch my D/L drop to 8748 B/s, Trying to install Flash Player right now, 20 minutes later and I'm 12% into it.

    been having the same issue for 36-48 hours, at multiple sites. slow, flapping connections running at most 100kbps.

    I just got a message after waiting a few hours, that the kernel upgrade in channel has is "Not Authenticated". I'm certainly not going to install a non-authenticated kernel.

    Yeah yeah yeah, today was a big release day; 9.10 was Beta'd, OpenOffice was updated, etc. A lot of users running their updates, so basically they are DDoSing the servers without even knowing it =P

    They seem to be running a bit smoother, still getting bad speeds, but not horrible as before.


    Just a small random question about the update servers, us.archive.ubuntu.com's servers are hosted in the UK, even though they use "us." as the subdomain. I find it a bit odd that they would use that subdomain but not host servers where it is implying to be located.

    Re: update servers down?

    Interesting...

    I run apt-cacher, which caches all of the package downloads on a server inside my network, and then all other machines use it as their server for updates... and until now I didn't realize how much apt-cacher still depends heavily on being able to reach the outside world. In a situation like this, I expected it to still be able to deliver updates to my local boxes if they were requesting updates that it already had cached. (This happens a lot for me because I run updates on machines running the live CD, which is why I started using apt-cacher in the first place.) Turns out it's not such a smooth process (it barely happens at all) if apt-cacher can't reach the outside world.

    But... apt-cacher does have a "run offline" mode ... now that it's in offline mode, my machines are getting their updates and all is well.
