Hm, I was able to install it just now… perhaps the mirror was down for
a moment or two… are you able to install it now?

Yours,

(not complaining!)

I’ve seen this on a few gems over the past few days, too, on several
Gems.
I just got the same error as above, then immediately reissued the
command
and got calibre-basicobject-1.0.0 (+ facets-2005.10.30) installed. I’d
say
it happened roughly one in four times I used Gems over the past week,
but
only once persisted for more than a moment.

I wonder if one of the mirrors has lost some files or something (with it
being a 404) ?

I’m not actually drunk, I just sound it.

Okay, I tried it three more time (after the three before) and it
finally worked. Hope you can figure out the issue and fix, it’s rather
irksome.

Thanks,
T.

Super!

Hm, maybe I need to set up some sort of mirror monitoring thingy…

It’s odd… because the files are just rsync’d from one machine to
another and then a mirror is selected via a RewriteMap [1]. I just
manually hit all the mirrors and they seem to be fine… but something
must be going awry somewhere.

Oddly, I just got a 300 Error

[jpb@athena:~/src]$ sudo gem update

This happened both while I was out using T-Mobile’s network and at home
with Time-Warner cable.

Anyhow, thanks for the additional data!
