Update problem - cl-update "Failed to find the binary updates server"

Hi there, I’m a CLD user. I have been experiencing some trouble to run cl-update and emerge. It looks like I can’t connect anymore to my mirror. I have been trying some solutions I’ve found online, but no luck and I’m afraid I may have messed up my configs.

I have two desktop machines running Calculate 20 KDE. I’ve got the same problem with both… may it be my internet provider is blocking it? I can’t notice any kind of problem with my internet connection.

When running cl-update I keep getting:

christian@calculate ~> sudo cl-update
Repositories synchronization
* Searching new binhost … [ ok ]
* Checking Distros updates …
* Git git://git.lautre.ru:/repo/distros.git is unavailable
* Failed to find the binary updates server
* Update failed

  • Searching new binhost … [ ok ]
  • Checking Distros updates …
  • Git git://git.github.com/calculatelinux/distros.git is unavailable
  • Failed to find the binary updates server

Can anyone give me a helping hand here? Thanks!

Hi Cristianvl

Have you try
cl-update --scan ( for searching the most appropriate server)

Hi Pat, thanks for answering.

Yes I have. And I also have tried changing the profile using the console or with

cl-update-profile

I can scan for the mirrors and the log shows they are answering. The profile command also runs successfully, but I keep getting the same error running cl-update (even with the scan flag).
