Description Sigurd Hogsbro 2004-10-11 11:50:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040510 Epiphany/1.2.4

Description of problem:
If you look in the file returned from the URL
you will see:

Downloads using the first mirror are wrong on two accounts:
1) They use the wrong DNS name (should use www.mirrorservice.org in
place of www.mirror.ac.uk)

2) Rewrite the URL to be '.../mirror/fedora.redhat.com/...', instead
of '.../sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/...'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Amend the up2date configuration to point to the UK mirrors
2. Run up2date
3. Observe 404 error

Actual Results:  An error 404 is returned, causing the up2date
application to exit.

Expected Results:  Update RPMs should have been downloaded from the UK
mirror site

Additional info:

This bug has partly been reported as CLOSED, see bug 130653. This
covers the DNS name used, but somehow seems to not have been reflected

Comment 1 Sigurd Hogsbro 2004-10-11 11:58:54 UTC
Oops, item 2) is wrong. That path-change is only the case if you keep
using the www.mirror.ac.uk hostname. If you change it to the
www.mirrorservice.org as stated in 1), it should work.
