Image copy from images:ubuntu/focal/cloud got 503 Service Unavailable

Does anyone hit that error recently?

lxc image copy images:ubuntu/focal/cloud local: --alias oem-focal --vm

Error: Failed getting image: Failed parsing stream: Unable to fetch https://images.linuxcontainers.org/streams/v1/index.json: 503 Service Unavailable

Yes, 503 error

The main image index server is currently down and will be back online ASAP, but the regional mirrors are up so you an add them as a remote directly, e.g.:

lxc remote add imagesuk https://uk.lxd.images.canonical.com --protocol=simplestreams
lxc remote add imagesus https://us.lxd.images.canonical.com --protocol=simplestreams

Then you can use them instead, e.g.

lxc launch imagesuk:ubuntu/focal c1

The official Ubuntu image mirrors are also available to use, e.g.

lxc launch ubuntu:20.04 c1

Seems to be working again now.

Yeah, service is back online, we had a bit of a weird situation with redundant distributed storage not being so redundant when something goes weirdly wrong…
