Updating Issue

I was trying to run updates this morning on my fedora lxc machines and they all are returning 404 errors. This is only effecting my LXC machine as my kvm Fedora Server is able to update with no issues.
Here is the output from one of my LXC machines:
[XX@XX XX]$ cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora release 37 (Thirty Seven)
[XX@XX XX]$ sudo dnf update
Fedora 37 - x86_64 - Updates 28 kB/s | 8.1 kB 00:00
Fedora 37 - x86_64 - Updates 450 kB/s | 442 kB 00:00
Errors during downloading metadata for repository ‘updates’:

I’m in Nova Scotia. Major wildfires here have affected internet. Nova Scotia is a landing point for transatlantic cables, so there may be unusually large lags for data crossing the pond. Now

Most often the 404 errors are simply caused by network problems, and most are beyond the users control. If other internet things are working then it is definitely beyond the users control.

Waiting some time then trying again should work. If the problem remains after a few days then it may be worth tracking down.

The actual break point may be identified with traceroute mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca

For me that host is accessible right now.

Ok, thank you. it has started working for me now.
