Chef Omnitruck Web Errors

I'm running into issues when updating Chef with the chef_client_updater cookbook.

From what I can tell, the Omnitruck website that gives package metadata is having issues:

root@ip-172-31-64-68:~# curl -IL ""

root@ip-172-31-64-68:~# curl -L ""

Normally this returns the package data so that it can be compared to what's installed (and then downloaded for an upgrade, if necessary).

But it's returning blank results. So I assume this is a server-side issue, but I just want to make sure.

i can see it

curl -L ""

Yeah, it's working now. If someone fixed it, thanks! If not, go go automated recovery?

Hi Folks! Our Ops team is looking at the issues with omnitruck. Status updates via


Thanks for the update! I didn't see anything on your statuspage when I first ran into this, so I figured this was an appropriate place to post. In the future, is there a more appropriate place to report issues like this, or is this fine?

in here is just fine. helps triangulate who's seeing what and where. :slight_smile:

Also didn't work for Windows clients. Later on the script download works however actual package fails to download.
