Something wicked happened! (SOLVED)
« on: September 17, 2019, 06:36:23 am »
I'm not exactly sure what this means, but I thought I ought to share it.  Lately, I've been getting this message occasionally when updating:

Code: [Select]

But, if I wait a few minutes, then the error message goes away!

Hmm looks like it is taking a while for it to find said Repository, usually a change of mirror or waiting a while can solve it.  ;D

That makes sense.  Now I guess I need to learn how to see what mirrors are available to me for Peppermint.  For whatever reason, this delay in updating has been happening more and more to me lately in Peppermint.

Thank you, clatterfordslim. :)

P.S.

I'll mark this issue as solved because now I know what's happening.  How to see and change mirrors in Peppermint may end up becoming another support question soon.  First I'll need to do a little homework about changing mirrors using the command line.  Again, thanks.  ;)

If it's always:-

Quote
Something wicked happened resolving 'ppa.launchpad.net

I doubt if changing the mirrors will help.

Whilst it could theoretically be at the launchpad end, if it were I'd expect everyone using a PPA would be seeing this .. and I'm not, I'd wonder more if it were some slowness/weirdness in my DNS setup.

Wow -- amazing detective work, Sherlock, AMAZING! :o   While our grandson was with us over the summer, I had set us up with OpenDNS' FamilyShield.  But, soon after he left, we returned to using Stubby.  I made the switch several weeks ago and, quite frankly, I had forgotten all about it.

Thanks so much, PCNetSpec.  We can live with this mild inconvenience.  Overall, at least for us in the States, I think using Stubby is worth it.  We don't have the digital privacy rights that most Europeans have.  Who knows what data and other nonsense our ISPs are trying to collect on us these days? ::)

Thank you.

LMAO :)) If you had said that you were using Open DNS I think I'd of been able to of worked it out too. Though ordinarily as in ordinary, or normal run of the mill Internet, would of just been changing mirrors. To change mirrors for you and everyone else reading this.

Open
Code: [Select]
menu/Settings/Software&Updates

Then this window should appear though yours won't necessarily say United Kingdom, it will be where ever you are in the world.


Left Click arrow in the box next to Download From, the one with the name of your Country of Internet provider.

Choose Other in the drop down box
This should pop up.
 

You can either left click Select Best Server or select one from the list that is from your Country of Internet provider.
 You will have to put your password in in order for Internet provider to change and when you click close it will scan for updates, just like it will whilst finding Best provider. Sometimes this happens to me, that for some odd reason the download speed goes slow. Either too many people downloading the same updates at the same time, or maintenance fixes from main server can have an affect on speed too, as all these mirrors are in affect downloading from main server and rerouting it to faster mirrors. Hope this helped? And everyone else who might experience problems in the future.  ;D

I see I hit the jackpot with this tread.  You know all these years I've been using Peppermint, I never thought to look what mirror I was using until yesterday. :-[

Well I've found a nearby mirror in Maine, and so far, knock on wood, everything's back to working like a charm.  I've updated and upgraded today without issue. :)

As a side note, Cisco's OpenDNS FamilyShield works very well.  I don't believe it's as private (or as secure for that matter) as Quad9 when used along with Stubby, but its free family shielding service is second to none.  I imagine Stubby has to be impacting my home's DNS performance to a minimal degree.  After all we're in the States and Stubby's servers are located in the Netherlands.

Thank you, gentlemen, for all your thoughts and insights here.  They've helped a great deal.

Blimey the Netherlands, that's like miles away from you. I'm just glad I was able to help in some small way and glad you have it fixed. I just love this OS and this Forum. One of my favorite parts is the little egg men they are so brilliant at capturing what people are feeling. Reminds me of a old ZX Spectrum game and for the life of me ah, love it when my brain does this and immediately comes up with the answer. The game was called Dizzy and it was a platform adventure game. Took ages to get anywhere, as you kept on to and fro, backwards and forwards, collecting stuff to get to solve the next puzzle. How I miss those type of games, that were so innocent and charming in their design. Oh happy days.  ;D

Both of your insights have helped me understand this issue better.  Since I'm the only one here noticing this here, I suspect, thanks to PCNetSpec, that Stubby is the thing slowing down my update process.  But, as you can see here, I do eventually manage it! ;)

Thank you PCNetSpec they are brilliant and can add them to my emails instead of regular smiley's that are with Thunderbird.  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
