failed reaching http://mirrors.elrepo.org/mirrors-elrepo.el8 from racknerd vps

so I am moving on from one provider to another and setting up a new vps.

I went to add the elrepo repository and it appears the mirror list is unreachable from my vps. I went with racknerd in Atlanta.

wget http://mirrors.elrepo.org/mirrors-elrepo.el8
works from all my machines and locations except for this one.

This message has led me to believe it may be blocked
https://elrepo.org/bugs/view.php?id=1262

the temp solution was to comment out the mirrors line in
/etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo

my public racknerd ip is in this range 23.94.91.2XX

thanks

  • Yesterday my hetzner vps got the same.
    So I'm thinking this is elrepo-site error.

  • thanks for the reply. I did see in the above url the op got his connection back the next day. And they do admit ongoing issues. I will try it again in a day or 2 if I dont forget :-)
    It is just the mirror list that is blocked

    for me right now I could reach the elrepo mirror from my home isp, a vps in canada and another one in Japan. only the atlanta one wouldnt connect.

    a working connection

    We have contacted elrepo staff, because one of our prefixes wes banned. Their response was:

    Please accept our apologies, we have been experiencing ongoing issues with a DDoS attack.

    Please can you confirm if your issues are intermittent or a consistent loss of connectivity.

    Please can you also provide the IP address(es) you are trying to connect from, and we will ensure they have not ended up on our block lists as we continue to try to defend the DDoS attack.

    As a temporary workaround, you can always disable the mirrorlist entry in the elrepo.repo file, and hard code your own local mirror in baseurl which may prove more reliable. Our mirror sites should remain unaffected.

  • Yes it is still blocked from IP 23.94.91.2XX . My guess is my little neighborhood of Colocrossing / Racknerd is in the same situation. The workaround worked for me.
