Download slow

Tue Dec 26, 2017 8:57 pm

Good evening,

I find that the download of software in the library is slow, about 40Kb/s. Is that normal?

Thank you

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?

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

If you download from the terminal, which part is slow?

The time it takes for the CDN node to cache the download (this is the time before it starts downloading)
or, the speed you get from the CDN node (the reported download speed in the terminal).
