Cannot delete packages in PPA, always timesout

Asked by Michael Rutter

Everytime I try to delete packages in my PPA, I get a timeout (Error ID: OOPS-aa28390212679ab9c317e9ea1ecf3416). My intent is to delete a couple of packages or delete all the packages for a release of Ubuntu that is no longer supported. This has been going on for a long time.

We have just made a change to the code on production that might help mitigate that issue. We don't have a large number of PPAs that contain the significant number of source packages that yours do, so could you try again and let me know in terms of failure or success?

I am now able to delete packages, so the fix worked. Thanks. I understand that I am an outlier in terms of the number of packages that are being built. If this becomes more of an issue, we can discuss.

Thanks again.
