Description Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2015-11-13 15:11:44 CET
I've installed a UCS 4,1 master and created a repository via univention-repository-create.

I started a "univention-repository-update net" but it didn't download the packages. The /var/log/univention/repository.log output:
Downloading 724 index files using 10 threads...
Begin time: Fri Nov 13 15:01:26 2015

apt-mirror: can't open index in proceed_index_gz at /usr/bin/apt-mirror line 448.
***** Starting univention-repository-update at Fri Nov 13 15:00:38 2015

File: /etc/apt/mirror.list

After switching from https to http, everything works as expected:
2015-11-13 15:07:21: set repository/mirror/server=http://updates.software-univention.de/ old:https://updates.software-univention.de/

 ucr set repository/mirror/server='http://updates.software-univention.de/'
Comment 1 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2015-12-11 15:50:17 CET
apt-mirror forks URCV(repository/mirror/threads)=10 processes by default to download the files using "wget". There seems to be a memory leak, since after some time the memory get completely filled and the kernel starts killing the wget processes: Those that get killed release enough memory for the other wget processes to finish.

OK: updated wget was imported to 4.1
OK: manual test "univention-repository-update net" with HTTPS sources
