I find that the download of software in the library is slow, about 40Kb/s. Is that normal?
It does slow down sometimes, not sure why, you can try using the terminal for updates, downloads. see if that's any better?
I use the terminal all the time and it seems to download at a reasonable speed UK btw, where are you located?
Always the same problem, it will annoy me to leave Solus for that....
Sometimes I also get the same problem. However, it works way better (in my case at least) to update the installation via the terminal. E.g., for me it is a real pain to install third-party apps. Via terminal, everything works perfectly
