So all has been running fine with my VPS for as long as I've had it. Until recently.
Linode sent me emails about a scheduled migration. I had no idea what it was for, or why it was necessary, but I assumed it wouldn't be a problem. I just ignored the emails, and let it go through. Now, today, when I want to install some more packages, I find out that the linode mirrors that come preinstalled (I didn't ask for those, but whatever) are not responding. Doing 'sudo apt update' hangs at '0% [Connecting to mirrors.linode.com]...'
Maybe it's a problem with the linode mirrors? So I use the default for /etc/apt/sources.list with https://repogen.simplylinux.ch/
. That also doesn't work. So now I try a simple test: lynx http://google.com
... Nothing. That also hangs. So it's the VPS I guess. Somehow the network isn't configured properly. Now, I _have_ played with the firewall (ufw) to allow through (in and out) some apps, but that was all working hunky dory before the migration. And even if I disable ufw, nothing changes. So I'm at a loss.
Oh, and weirdly... If I do 'lynx http://bing.com
' it works as expected.
Any ideas on how I can debug this?
