Re: MX Updater broke my system

MX Updater not working today SOLVED

Hi. I just tried to update two of my computers this morning and the upgrader did not connect and failed to download.
I used Synaptic and it worked fine. Not sure what the hiccup was. I just thought i would report it. Perhaps I ran it too soon after logging on?
