Github deps.get timeout / error

I see the following error when I try to mix deps.get with one dependency (others from Github do work) in a large umbrella app (which is new to me)

* Updating logger_file_backend (
* Updating ets_manager (git://
** (Mix) Command "git --git-dir=.git fetch --force --quiet --progress" failed

My colleagues aren’t seeing this behaviour, so I am assuming they have something cached which I do not…

I also tried,

mix deps.unlock ets_manager

but no luck either.


if you upgrade your hex version to >= 0.17.2 mix local.hex
you can configure timeout mix hex.config http_timeout 120 default is 60

Good idea, but not working. Ah well.

* Updating ets_manager (git://
fatal: unable to connect to[0:]: errno=Connection timed out[1:]: errno=Connection timed out

** (Mix) Command "git --git-dir=.git fetch --force --quiet --progress" failed

delete deps/ets_manager and try again ? also show mix.exs and try to fetch same package in new elixir project

I actually ended up firing up a completely new VM etc. in order to try and solve this (not only deleted the deps folder) but no luck.

Ah well…

turned out it was a restrictive networking setup in our office… thanks @dokuzbir for the suggestions!
