Hi,

We've noticed increasing occurrences where we are unable to retrieve updates from download.proxmox.com from South Africa. We get directed towards af.cdn.proxmox.com and are unable to establish a connection to the resulting IP on tcp:80 (http).


Code:
[admin@backup1 ~]# host download.proxmox.com
download.proxmox.com is an alias for download.cdn.proxmox.com.
download.cdn.proxmox.com is an alias for af.cdn.proxmox.com.
af.cdn.proxmox.com is an alias for at.cdn.proxmox.com.
at.cdn.proxmox.com has address 94.136.30.185
at.cdn.proxmox.com has IPv6 address 2a01:7e0:0:424::249

please try again.

if you still see issues, you can try instead of download.proxmox.com you the german mirror de.cdn.proxmox.com as a workaround for now.

The outages I've hit typically last about an hour and yes, it is working again now... Any chance of automating DNS updates to avoid situations where we aren't able to complete updates during scheduled maintenance events?

Or Proxmox perhaps considering signing up with a forward caching service such as Fastly (relatively cheap and reliable) or Cloudflare?

Thanks for reporting - the issue was not caused by a scheduled maintenance - we will analyse the reason and act accordingly.
