I’ve seen & noted the reports (AU & elsewhere, even UF) too, but to me it’s issues that occur every so often.
A normally reliable mirror falls behind (possibly an internal change is implemented) and users don’t notice all at once, but soon do notice & a flood of support queries occur. Mirror issue will resolve in my experience once bug report is raised; and support issues disappear (till next time, on different mirror).
I’m involved with Ubuntu News, and Canonical made a change to the hosting of Ubuntu Fridge… That site is mirrored on Ubuntu News, a process that is automatic & thus I (we?) pay little attention to it… As I login to fridge, that’s where I tested the change… but some-time later I noticed feeds on google are behind (they get it from ubuntu-news it turns out) … issue is detected, and with luck will be fixed soon
As I see it, this is an issue that props up 2-3 times a year, for different mirrors, and they resolve with time. Either the ISP notices (someone complains I suspect), or someone working at the company noticed. At times it’s quick, other times it takes weeks (if you looked, the Ubuntu News site is now 3 weeks behind Ubuntu Fridge… I wish I’d noticed that earlier & chased up… but it happens, and we’ll get there)
FYI: Thank you for your support efforts @KGIII
Additional Later thoughts: It’s the same period of time as the Ubuntu Fridge/News changes… I’m not a web person, so much of what I was told with regards changes being made by Canonical sailed way over my head… It’s about the same time though (we [Ubuntu news Team] could schedule the when). It’d be impacting MANY MANY mirrors if it was a Canonical change, so I suspect it’s still a ISP issue personally
