    What has happened to ubuntu servers?

    I have been unable to log in or navigate any of the Ubuntu domains for four hours or more till now. What has happened?

    Yes, it seems really odd.
    Canonical, Ubuntu.com, the Ubuntu forums, the package manager... everything - was broken for over 10 hours.

    Still can't download packages, either.
    (Trying to download Lynx, but it can't connect)

    Well, it's really incredible!!! We are talking about really important domains down for so much time. It must have been something really serious. If not, I don't understand.

    I heard rumors on digg that it was a massive power outage.

    Oh no, plenty of conspiracy theories... such as people believed that Ubuntu had been compromised by hackers and they took down some of the repositories to link them to their own so that unsuspecting users would update their system and be infected.

    But, then they don't have what's called UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)??

    Yeah I'm sure they do but that can only run it for a short amount of time and it may have been more than a simple power outage. Could have been several power related failures coupled together that would have included the UPS's.

    A UPS only lasts so long... Any major server center I have seen is hooked into multiple power grids - but the power theory said that both primary and secondary power sources went offline.

    I'm not complaining about them not being online either (though it did make installing a few things fairly difficult), just interested in what happened.
