Full Version: XBMC 12.3 Curl Errors on Library Update
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
So at some point over the past week, without changing anything on the system to my knowledge, library updates began to fail. ANyone know what could be the issue? I am running the latest build for my OS (Fedora 19).

I can actually use curl via the command line to download the URL in the logs below:

[localhost temp]$ curl -O http://thetvdb.com/api/1D62F2F90030C444/series/259372/all/en.zip

Anyone out there have any idea why this might happen?

It's rather annoying, the sudden inability to update any shows / movies.

try downgrading or upgrading curl. Might be the well know curl bug introduced in one version and fixed in the next.
I'm also seeing these errors on a Windows install - since the Jan 8th update to cURL to 7.4

Has anyone had success in fixing this issue ?
So I've tried downgrading curl, libcurl and python-curl to no avail. I was going to update the whole thing to Ubuntu 14.04 in a few weeks, but in the mean time this is rather annoying.

I'd like to get this sorted, even if it's just for posterity...

I also have to add that no updates were done to the system outside of addon updates that are automatic. I have tried removing and reinstalling most of the updates I have. Doesn't seem to solve it either.
this error is very generic:
CURLE_RECV_ERROR (56): Failure with receiving network data.

maybe read
