Description of problem: Attempt to download Fedora 10 update from http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora?intcmp=70160000000HdAdAAK. Auto redirected to mirror.aarnet.edu.au, but get 403 message from http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso:
You don't have permission to access /pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0.52 (Red Hat) Server at mirror.aarnet.edu.au Port 80
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 10
How reproducible: Click on "Download now" upgrade link while in Australia
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: HTTP error 403 from mirror
Expected results: download occurs
shows that the DVD image is missing, only the CD images are available. This isn't too unusual (although it would be nice if the redirect checked if the file actually existed first). Go to
to find a usable server.
We don't have much control over the mirrors.
Agreed that you don't have control over what the mirrors do, but you do have control over the links on the Fedora site. I "just clicked on the upgrade button on the Fedora site" and got a broken link with no indication of alternatives to try. A pointer to the mirrors would have been more valuable than a broken link selected by Fedora.
