I had this problem a couple of days ago with the UK cvsup mirrors, the
only two things I could think of were:
1. I'd tried to cvsup once too often (e.g. two or three times in 24
hours) - don't think this was the case but I wouldn't be surprised if
the mirror maintainers impose temporary bans on IPs that try to
connect more than X times in a given period.
2. Some sort of update was pushed out that caused things to break on
The problem seemed to go away for a couple of days but it's back for
me at the moment.
