Is this error a big deal?

It occurred when running yay.

error: failed retrieving file ‘endeavouros.db’ from : Failed to connect to port 443 after 434 ms: Couldn’t connect to server

Rerank your mirrors from the welcome app. seems to be down:

Perhaps @freebird54 is doing some maintenance?

Looks like the Canadian mirror is offline.
Hopefully just a temporary issue.

@Alpix do you know anything more about this?

@sempterobit if the situation continues, you might want to re-rank the EndeavourOS mirrors with eos-welcome or eos-rankmirrors.

OK - just heard this now - and discovered that the system was down. I assumed it was just a power outage related thing (down too long for the UPS) but on restart it went right back down! Have to suspect the power supply… so now the question is whether to source a replacement, or shift things to another box that still runs (the current one is pretty old…maybe 2008?).

Either way, the mirror is down for a day or two while it is sorted out - sorry about that! I am not quite as quick at these fixes now that I struggle with digging out the hardware (age-related). It WILL be back!!


Thanks for the information!
Hardware problems can be very tricky too (and unfortunately costly…), but hopefully you’ll find a reasonable way to get things going again. :sweat_smile:

Further update… I have it back up - but am not sure for how long. I had a similar thing with this machine a number of years ago, and I never did understand how it was going down. I replaced the power supply, and took aother measures, and it started working again and has for a couple of years now. Was it replacing the internal battery that fixed it? Can’t remember - but that isn’t surprising at my age!

Anyway - up for now, and I will be swapping it out for different hardware over the next few days (I think) - depending on parts availability and accessibility. Please message me if it goes down - I can’t sit there watching the power LED! :grin:

(BTW - the chaotic-AUR mirror is affected by the same things - no more and no less. Same disposition over the near time)

At least now it is working,

eos-rankmirrors -n

showed it properly among others.

A further update to the situation. I have decided that the underlying hardware is showing signs of being less reliable (runs on an AMD A10-5800K if that helps date it!) so have decided to do something about it. I considered repositioning my secondary machine for the purpose (and probably should have!) - but instead the ‘old’ one gets a heart transplant - new MB, CPU, RAM and m.2 drive. IF you find the system down for a bit during the day, that’s why! :grin:

Shouldn’t take long - but then I am often wrong about that - and I might end up having to put a temporary replacement (aforementioned secondary machine) into use - but in some way the situation will be resolved, and hopefully improved!
