Since the 2015-11-05 win64 Nightly, checking for updates yields nothing; checking simply says "Nightly is up to date". Going back to an older Nightly (pre 2015-11-05) and checking for updates, it updates *to* the 2015-11-05 Nightly. 32-bit Nightlies seem to be unaffected - updating from the 2015-11-04 32-bit Nightly yields the 2015-11-08 Nightly. It appears 64-bit Nightly updates past 2015-11-05 are simply missing. The same thing happens on a fresh profile, and other users are reporting the same problem: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2972339 As a result of this bug, many Nightly users are likely not testing the latest Nightlies.

I think this is just fallout from bug 1115490.
It might be; are the builds that the update server looks for different from the ones at http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/? I ask because those are still being updated - though the update server always seems to be at least several hours behind (e.g. when I wrote this bug, the win32 Nightly would update to the 2015-11-08 build, while archive.mozilla.org already had the 2015-11-09 build).
Sorry, I didn't mean to undo the duplicate.
I believe so. Depends on when the jobs time out, according the last comment in that bug.
¡Hola! I'm not sure what fixed it, but I just got an update to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 ID:20151110030205 CSet: cc473fe5dc512c450634506f68cbacfb40a06a23 ¡Gracias! Alex
As I understand it, this is an intermittent problem: sometimes builds do succeed, but most of the time (at least the Nightly builds) they fail. The 2015-11-10 build happened to succeed, but it looks like the 2015-11-11 build did not. There's a patch up in bug 1115490 to increase the timeout on the builds so they will hopefully succeed all the time again.
