Universe Launchpad Server outage affecting Ubuntu and Zorin, Mint, POP_OS users

Just tried to update my Zorin OS install via the Software Updater.

Got a "Failed to download repository information" message.

Went into the terminal and ran a sudo command. Got the following:

"503 Service Unavailable" (for the Zorin/Ubuntu servers, apparently)

What's going on? Is the Zorin Group doing maintenance? Or updating?

mee too , update not running

I highly recommend refraining from running upgrades until the servers are back up.
That many repositories being down may mean that conflicts can arise from upgrading packages.

According to Canonical's status page, this has been going on for two hours (as of this time). Wonder what the problem could be. Interesting. Link: https://status.canonical.com

I have pinned this until tomorrow and adjusted the title to give users some fair warning.

It looks like that it is a launchpad Problem. The direct Ubuntu and Zorin sources are working.
