I have a project at production, which I’ve copied locally and tried executing. No matter what command I issue locally at CLI (reset, update, run) the first thing Meteor tries to do is to “Download firstname.lastname@example.org” (before I updated this, it was @1.1.9 or something). And then it’s just stuck there like forever. At first it was [2%==> ] downloading or something. now the progress bar has vanished and there’s just the spinner. I tried to see if this was a local issue by copying the project at various server instances but to no avail. They’re all stuck at the same stage, in the same way. Strangely though, if i “meteor create” a new project in a different folder, everything goes smoothly, the project is created in 10 seconds at most.
I also saw that the forums are also full of topics on this issue and it’s been going on since November. I swear, some people have said that the best way is to “leave your machine be and in the morning, the download will have finished”. Guys, are we back to 1998? It just doesn’t make any sense for the download of “meteor-tool” package to take longer than the download and installation of Meteor itself. This is a huge inconvenience and I’m sure it’s gotta be related to some kind of bug. Is there any work in progress on this? Or is there something I should do to
