Download Incomplete for qgis-dev

Reported by: neumann Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: major Component: Installer
Version: Keywords:
Cc: jef

Description

Sometimes (relatively frequently) the OSGeo4W installer fails to install qgis-dev (trunk version). I get a download incomplete message after the download went to >99%. So I wonder if there is a mismatch between the expected download size and the real download size?

Maybe a proxy problem? The upload was ok. But even if it wasn't the download should still be ok and there should be a problem unpacking it. Not in this case, though. Is there a proxy involved on your end?

yes - there is a proxy involved. We are using the IE proxy settings to connect with the OSGeo4W installer.

If I retry on the same day it fails. I have to wait at least for a new version of qgis-dev and then it often works again.

Sometimes it fails on one machine, but works on another machine. If it fails on one machine it will always fail again on the same day (with the same qgis-dev version).

I don't experience the same problem with other packages. Only qgis-dev is affected.

It seems that this really is a proxy issues. We can close this bug.

I got a workaround from Jürgen: Some downloaders, such as wget can download the concerned file with a "no cache" option (wget --no-cache). This triggers an update of the concerned file in the proxy cache.

I also just recently started to establish a local package repository to reduce the bandwidth of the OSGeo Server and accelerate our own local installations. It also reduces the proxy issues for us.
