MX Codecs Installer Failure

#1 Post by K7AAY » Tue Jun 26, 2018 1:00 am

The MX Codecs Installer menu item fails immediately after a new install of 17.1 June 64-bit. It starts by executing

wget -qO- http://deb-multimedia.org/dists/stable/ ... ackages.gz | zgrep ^Filename | grep libdvdcss2 | awk '{print $2}'

which fails with

CANNOT CONNECT TO THE DOWNLOAD SITE

as does

wget -qO- http://deb-multimedia.org/dists/stable/ ... ackages.gz | zgrep ^Filename | grep w.*codecs | awk '{print $2}'

with the same failure. Yet, I can ping deb-multimedia.org with 160ms response.

No, it's probably not me, I think there's something wrong with the site the wget command doesn't work anymore, let's wait to see if they fix it. Pinging a site is not always an indication that everything works fine. I don't get anything when I go to http://deb-multimedia.org

It was a problem with the server, I can see it now. So nothing to do with the reboot (it's not Windows after all :)
