I had a lot of problems recently installing packages, in particular after I re-installed meteor (in Switzerland). Other people seems to have the same problem:
It’s currently not easy to find a reliable solution. Overriding METEOR_WAREHOUSE_URLBASE with something like
export METEOR_WAREHOUSE_URLBASE=https://d3fm2vapipm3k9.cloudfront.net sometimes help, sometimes not.
It’s currently a really bad situation and I would love to get a) a statement from mdg about what’s going on, b) gather solutions for people that have these problems.
I think a thread here is better than opening another github issue about the topic.
