Easy install error - this should never happen


#1

I am getting this error when trying to boot strap and ec2 ami. This
error should never occur. In fact I have seen random easy install
errors with web.by as well. What is going on? Its random. I have
made no changes and has previously worked.

easy_install_package “redis” do
action :install
end

It could be a timeout. Can you provide the contents of this file?

PyPI was down briefly earlier today. If you want something more reliable, use pip and the the use-mirrors option.
