Is the raspberrypi.org Repository Down?

It’s a bit too late for April Fools’, isn’t it? 

We have a Rasbian box:

$ cat /etc/issue
Raspbian GNU/Linux 7 \n \l

With the following kernel:

$ uname -rvm
3.10.24+ #614 PREEMPT Thu Dec 19 20:38:42 GMT 2013 armv6l

Sources list looks like:

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

And the apt update fails as below:

The raspberrypi.org site seems to down for maintenance. A bit too late for April Fools’, isn’t it?

  1. And looks like it’s still down, as I just tried an apt-get update on my Pi and it hangs at the first archive.raspberrypi.org. Fortunately I took an image of my SD card before I wiped it, so I can go back to a previous installation.
