Re: Important: Broken EPEL mirror breaking EPEL in UK - "mirrorservice.org"



I have marked it as not "admin_active" so it should disappear from mirror lists shortly.

I'll try to remember to check on it and I will email the mirror's admins when I get hometonight, but if anyone notices it being fixed, please let me or another mirrormanager admin know so we can reenable it.

Would it be possible for somebody to remove it from the Fedora mirror list
until it is fixed then?

Hello,

Nearly all of our RHEL4/5/6 desktops and workstations at the University
of Southampton use the EPEL repository (via the epel-release rpm). For
the past few days the mirrorservice.org mirror appear to be broken,
generating errors like these on RHEL:

I noticed this too. I logged a bug report on their site but have heard
nothing from them.

The yum configuration (as set by epel-release rpm) uses
mirrors.fedoraproject.org to generate mirrors to use, which right now are:


http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/x
86_64/
http://mirror01.th.ifl.net/epel/5/x86_64/
http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/fedora/epel/5/x86_64/
http://mirrors.coreix.net/fedora-epel/5/x86_64/

You can view this list anywhere in the world like so:
http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-5&arch=x86_64&countr
y=gb

The bottom four mirrors all seem to be correct, but the first mirror
(mirrorservice.org) is broken, its repomd.xml file refers to files which
are not on the mirror (or in fact on any of the mirrors!).

Can somebody either remove the mirrorservice.org mirror ASAP from the
generator on mirrors.fedoraproject.org system, or fix the mirror. The one
broken mirror appears to in effect break EPEL altogether in the UK
because as soon as yum caches the repomd.xml file from the first mirror
(mirroservice.org) it then continues to look for the invalid/non-existent
SQLite file which doesn't exist on all of the other mirrors - because
it's using the repomd.xml file from the first mirror. Right now that
means all our server and desktop builds are broken and our customers are
reporting that their desktops tell them that the system is not receiving
updates.

I've cc'ed in help mirrorservice org onto this e-mail since it is their
mirror which is currently giving out incorrect info.
