My fedora mirrors have been very slow today and I have tried “sudo dnf clean all” and refreshing dnf updates but still the mirrors are downloading even below 1 kbps and rarely going above 50kbps. I have checked the mirrorlist however im unaware on how to find the exact mirror being used…

The mirror that is getting used is https://ftp.yz.yamagata-u.ac.jp
Please can we remove this mirror, or can I report a mirror complaint to the fedora project ? I checked my old logs and this mirror is getting used in all of them since the last 4-5 hours.

You can try this way:

sudo dnf config-manager --save --setopt=fastestmirror=True

It changed to http://ftp.iij.ad.jp which is also very slow…
I am not sure why mirrors are slow today, despite my internet is fine and my other system with RHEL 8 is very fast and also did a speedtest.

Edit : It also changed to http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp which is also download very slow. Can this be caused by dnf clean all ?

You need to download the complete metadata once after that, and then it should be fine.

How to do that tho ?

sudo dnf upgrade

nothing to do. So I don’t think its a metadata problem :frowning:

Its back to mbps now :slight_smile: just waiting for an hour, things are fine now, maybe metadata was building in the background… Thanks for your help
