Unable to connect to software.virtualmin.com 9/8/23 (, UK)

Probably a problem heard a million times, but having troubles getting updates from software.virtualmin.com today, its interfering with our routine maintenance schedule.

The IP is and I’m getting the below from multiple servers (in the same hosting provider) this morning.

W: Failed to fetch http://software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/gpl/apt/dists/virtualmin- focal/InRelease Could not connect to software.virtualmin.com:80 ( 4), connection timed out
W: Failed to fetch http://software.virtualmin.com/vm/6/gpl/apt/dists/virtualmin- universal/InRelease Unable to connect to software.virtualmin.com:http:
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Is anyone else having issues today?

Are there any mirrors or anything?

Pleased to say normal service seems to have resumed as of 10:50:36 AM UTC.

If anyone pressed a button or two, thanks a bunch!

I had the same problem at about the same time. It was very brief.

I was running the updates on five servers in five tabs. The one in the fifth tab threw the error; but it was resolved by the time I cycled through the first four tabs to check whether the updates had succeeded (they had). So maybe three to five minutes.


Cheers Richard,

Yea mine lasted longer I had issues running update on 3 servers for about 1 - 2 hours but no mither!

The wonders of the internet! I did notice a new webmin update so maybe repo was updating IDK
