Hi,

One of our server is out of line in a way which does not allow the load balancing to fall back on one of our other server.
Please use
install pythia-pgs --source=ucl
to avoid to use the faulty server.

Our just try multiple times "install XXXX" up to the time that it works (since the choice of the server is random)

Cheers,

Olivier
