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
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 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 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
