Hello everybody,

"Waiting for refresh to finish..." is the message that I get with U command
after package-list-packages, but the refresh is never finished and I cannot
upgrade the packages.

Help is welcome.

Best wishes,

Jo.

Hm. Doesn't happen here. Network problem?

I'm far from an expert in that area, but perhaps more details are needed.

What is the value of your variable `package-archives'? Are the URLs mentioned
there reachable from your neck of the woods?

This might be the relevant tidbit. But still, we don't know what version
your Emacs is, and thus whether this code is actually relevant or not.

What is the actual value of your variable `package-archives' in your
Emacs running instance? Try doing C-h v and then enter `package-archives'.

Are those sites reachable from your place? I.e. try something like

  curl -I https://stable.melpa.org/packages/

in a shell (likewise for the other URLs). For me, they are all four.
We still don't know whether those are the ones your Emacs is trying
to reach (and the hunch with networking is just that, a hunch).

Cheers

Hi again,

Many thanks for your reply. Here are the details requested.

joseph@mx:~$ emacs --version
GNU Emacs 26.1


>

package-archives’s value is
(("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/")
 ("melpa-stable" . "https://stable.melpa.org/packages/")
 ("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/")
 ("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/"))
Original value was 
(("gnu" . "https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/"))

  This variable may be risky if used as a file-local variable.

Documentation:
An alist of archives from which to fetch.
The default value points to the GNU Emacs package repository.

Each element has the form (ID . LOCATION).
 ID is an archive name, as a string.
 LOCATION specifies the base location for the archive.
  If it starts with "http(s):", it is treated as an HTTP(S) URL;
  otherwise it should be an absolute directory name.
  (Other types of URL are currently not supported.)

Only add locations that you trust, since fetching and installing
a package can run arbitrary code.

You can customize this variable.

This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
version 26.1 of Emacs.

OK. So this variable is being read, probably (since 26.1 < 27), but...

...but the actual variable's value has been "augmented" by a
(second) entry for "melpa", mapping to "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/".

This one fails for me trying to resolve the name (host melpa.milkbox.net
is unknown to (at least my) DNS).

[...]

Yes, this one works for me, too. But the milkbox one doesn't.
Now I have no idea what "update packages" will do in such a
case (and having two entries tagged with the same name looks
suspect too).

When you do the "describe variable" thing, there is a link in the
variable description "You can [customize] this variable" (actually
there are no square brackets there, it's my way to suggest that
this text looks different. Click on this link (or just put point
on it and hit ENTER) and you'll get a customization page. Try
to remove that milkbox entry.

Glad it helped :)

Let's hope this value stays when you restart Emacs. If it came from a
prior customization (which is likely), saving your customization (which
you probably did) will do the trick. Otherwise, some more debugging is
in order.

Cheers
