Description Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2017-02-28 15:58:43 UTC
On a system with accidentally no DNS configured:

# emerge-webrsync
Fetching most recent snapshot ...
Trying to retrieve 20170227 snapshot from ...
Fetching file portage-20170227.tar.xz.md5sum ...
Fetching file portage-20170227.tar.bz2.md5sum ...
Fetching file portage-20170227.tar.gz.md5sum ...
20170227 snapshot was not found

The only indication that something went wrong is a generic "not found", which doesn't distinguish between no network, not reachable, actually not on server and other potential errors.

This makes debugging more difficult ...
