Client Install RedHat Repository Download Fails

Hello All,

I have a persistent issue with trying to install the RedHat client. I can download all the support packages, but when the install attempts to download any of these:

I get the following error:

owncloud-client-l10n-2.3.3-833 FAILED [Errno 12] Timeout on (28, 'Operation too slow. Less than 1000 bytes/sec transferred the last 30 seconds')
Trying other mirror.

Seeing that the heart of the problem seems to be a slow connection, I decided to let the install loop overnight retrying mirrors hoping traffic to the servers would dissipate. This morning I woke to find the install had stopped with the below errors at the bottom of the list:

libowncloudsync0-2.3.3-8338.1.x86_64: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
owncloud-client-2.3.3-8338.1.x86_64: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
owncloud-client-l10n-2.3.3-8338.1.x86_64: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Is there another repository I can reference or some other way I can solve this problem. I know my connection speed is good on my end. I am working on it all day and have no issues anywhere else. I have also experienced this problem from multiple locations.

Thanks for taking the time to read this over. I hope someone can please help me out here.


I have the same issue. Every package for everything downloads except the owncloud packages. I can download them by hand with wget just fine, but yum will NOT download them. I set the timeout to 300 and it still won't come down. It's a very strange and very recent problem. I'm trying to build a bunch of machines and this is blocking me.

@iharding - I can't tell if you got the owncloud client fully installed or just downloaded by your message, so I thought I'd pass along what I did to get it to work, for your benefit or anyone else that comes along with this problem.

  1. Downloaded the three files that kept timing out:


  2. Installed downloaded files in this order:

    sudo yum install ./libowncloudsync0-2.3.3-8338.1.x86_64.rpm
    sudo yum install ./owncloud-client-l10n-2.3.3-8338.1.x86_64.rpm ./owncloud-client-2.3.3-8338.1.x86_64.rpm

That sequence assured the dependent library was in place before installing anything else. Then the other two packages must be on the same "yum install" line. If they aren't on the same line you will be in an infinite loop of attempting to install them one at a time because each will try to download the other and fail. By putting them on the same install line yum knows to look locally for both of them. This of course assumes your current working directory is the same as where the three packages are. Adjust accordingly.

I'm sure this can be done in other ways, like maybe just putting all three packages on the same install line, or possibly installing each of them in some fashion with the --nodeps option, but this above approach proved to work for me, so it's what I have to offer. ;^)

Steve has listed some alternative mirrors which might worth a try. IIRC OpenSUSE had a lot trouble the last few weeks with their mirrors.

Thank you. This is really silly to have to do this. I hope they can fix this, I have a bunch of machines to install

I think its already fixed if you use the alternative mirrors i had pointed out above. Seems OpenSUSE Build Service has another batch of issues with their mirrors so it really worth a try to use the new download repositories maintained / administrated by the owncloud guys linked above.
