Is this an issue with the repository or is something broken on my server?

I have this same issue with gitlab-ee on two Ubuntu servers, 16.04.1 and 14.04.5.

Seems fine now, I’m guessing that the GitLab folks were doing some updates of their own.

Yes. There was a period of downtime. Sorry about that!

Hello,

I am getting the same issue with same OS as the initial post.
Only difference that I try to Install. (apt-get install gitlab-ce)

We are trying to set up a Gitlab CE for evaluation.
Should we contact the sales with whom we discuss the EE purchase? …

Thank you,
Mircea
