[Errno 104] Connection reset by peer when uploading orig.tar.gz

Asked by VIPA on 2019-01-10

For the last month or so I have been getting
[Errno 104] Connection reset by peer
errors when while dput is uploading the *.orig.tar.gz file.

Here is the terminal output from the last time I tried it:

epier@epier2:~/git/vipa_2.5zx$ dput ppa:vipateam/vipatest *.changes

Package includes an .orig.tar.gz file although the debian revision suggests
that it might not be required. Multiple uploads of the .orig.tar.gz may be
rejected by the upload queue management software.

The last time it worked was on 2018-11-29. Here is the terminal output then:

Successfully uploaded packages.

I get the error every time I do a dput upload. Nothing changed in my code or in my upload procedures on 11/30 the day it stopped working.

Let me know if there is any more information I can give you to help resolve this.

It's probably something on the network path between you and ppa.launchpad.net; FTP can be problematic with some firewalls. Have you tried using SFTP instead?

Can you help with this problem?
