The mirror under$repo/os/$arch

is reliably unreliable.
On larger updates, i.e. if I update more than a few packages, I will fail sooner or later downloading files from the server.
See update.log (German locale).

As soon as I change the mirror, I can upgrade.
I worked around this by adding


to my /etc/xdg/reflector/reflector.conf but maybe the mirror owner wants to investigate this issue, since this is the single mirror I have issues with.
This task depends upon

Apologies for the delay.
I've been looking in to this mirror and currently it's dragging behind by 2 seconds.

But while investigating I noticed the `lastsync` is ahead with ~1min compared to Tier0.

Not sure how that's possible but `lastupdate` is correct and I suspect the mirror is back to normal operation.
I'll go ahead and close this ticket but appreciate the bug report, and if it pops back do let us know and I'll be a bit quicker next time and notify the mirror admin.
