Extremely slow downloads when updating Silverblue and Fedora IoT?

Hi all.

When trying to update Silverblue and IoT, I’m getting extremely slow speeds from Europe, and it ends with an HTTP/2 framing layer error:

Receiving objects; 66% (2/3) 32.0 kB/s 33.8 MB... done
error: While pulling fedora/36/x86_64/testing/silverblue: While fetching https://d2uk5hbyrobdzx.cloudfront.net/objects/55/00b2dffffc605f3f8479a211b2a7cf3afe0862ba13c3a3a2deee7999e10b7f.filez: [92] Stream error in the HTTP/2 framing layer

I assume this is going to also be a problem for people using CoreOS and Kinoite as well.

(I wanted to try to update again and work-around the not-being-able-to-upgrade issue @ Update again and again - #2 by piotr, but the speed + HTTP/2 error issue even prevents me from hitting the other problem at the moment.)

Hopefully someone in the Fedora admin group notices this issue and fixes it somewhat soon. (Huge thanks in advance!)

We’ve had issues in the distant past like this but nothing recent that I’m aware of. What does rpm-ostree status show and what is in the files in /etc/ostree/remotes.d for you?

A quick search says CloudFront is an Amazon content delivery network. If it’s the same network they put Prime Video on, I think they’ve been having issues lately – it takes multiple attempts to open the app, the unsuccessful ones saying in different languages there is an internet connectivity issue. Anyway it might not be a Fedora problem.

It’s a lot faster today. I saw speeds in the Mb/s.

It’s probably exactly what @mpphill2 says, related to CloudFront having issues lately.
