https://vault.centos.org/ is down

Post by wor-ku » 2022/03/01 02:06:34

Code: Select all

curl -IL http://vault.centos.org/
I'm not getting any response from this repo.

Have i missed something or is this just an outage?

It's working from here. I would suspect that you are coming from an ip address block that has been used by spammers to attack vault and it's been blacklisted. There are other vault mirrors around, I would suggest pulling from those instead.
CentOS 8 died a premature death at the end of 2021 - migrate to Rocky/Alma/OEL/Springdale ASAP.

Same here.

I can access on VPN, but my residential connection times out. I have internet and everything else works. My residential internet hasn’t been spamming it.

My best guess for why I’d get banned is I was trying to fix some bad urls due to CentOS EOL when installing OpenStack on RHEL8. But my traffic was tiny and not bannable.

It's not working here either
I'm trying to download CentOS through Vagrant but it's not working

Code: Select all

http://vault.centos.org/centos/7/os/Source/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout on http://vault.centos.org/centos/7/os/Source/repodata/repomd.xml: (28, 'Operation too slow. Less than 1000 bytes/sec transferred the last 30 seconds')
Trying other mirror.
When I disconnect from my VPN it all seems to work fine so i suspect you are correct.

The container I am using has additional repos setup, exert from the Dockerfile:

Code: Select all

yum -y install --enablerepo=centosplus yum-utils

And every build it attempts a different mirror as per the loded plugins fastestmirror, ovl..
Build 1...
Determining fastest mirrors
* base: mirror.internode.on.net
* extras: mirror.internode.on.net
* updates: mirror.internode.on.net

Build 2...
Determining fastest mirrors
* base: mirror.overthewire.com.au
* extras: mirror.overthewire.com.au
* updates: mirror.overthewire.com.au
All repos have

Code: Select all

enabled=0
tho which seems a bit odd, i expected at least one of them to have

Code: Select all

enabled=1

I switched to the rockylinux docker image - it's all good.
RIP CentOS, The good always die young
