Official repos timing out/very slow

Briefly describe your issue below:
Have been trying to install updates from rolling InRelease rolling-security InRelease
Getting download speeds of around 20-60kbps dwindling down to nothing most often ending with connection failed.

I have tried with and without vpn, have ran a speed test and am getting my normal bandwidth. Have been trying for 8 hours. Is anyone else experiencing this?

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
$uname -a
Linux parrot 5.2.0-2parrot1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.2.9-2parrot1 (2019-08-25) x86_64 GNU/Linux
$cat /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME=“Parrot GNU/Linux 4.7”
NAME=“Parrot GNU/Linux”
└──╼ $

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

Just letting you know that I had the exact same problem last night.
Extremely frustrating but I got updates to work a few minutes ago, still
slow but at least no ‘connection failed’ messages.
BTW I didn’t do anything special other than just keep trying updates at
a later time.

Yes there is a problem with updates.

I was able to get updates to go through and quickly by switching to another mirror from those listed at
I personally used
deb rolling main contrib non-free
deb rolling-security main contrib non-free
Works great.
