I haven't seen an email that we have disabled updates on the Nightly or Aurora channel. So given our latest Mozmill update test results something is broken again massively. 

An example you can find here:

The appropriate AUS update file is empty:

Same I can see for all platforms for Nightly and Aurora.
This is because of bug 793088, in particular comment #16. Until we have central and aurora nightlies that are verified fixed those updates should stay off.
Depends on: 793088
Thanks Nick! I have temporarily disabled our update tests until the dependency has been solved.

Comment 3

5 years ago shows repacks running for 9h+, is there something funky on the mail path?

I'd love to give green light on re-establishing the updates, but that's hard without knowing that builds finished.

bug 793088 is fixed now, can we switch teh updates back on?
Aurora is back on for Firefox. For Nightly, mw32-ix-slave09 got into a bad state and burned quite a few locales on m-c, so I've set a clobber on that. Once da, hi-IN, ka, km, and mk rebuild I'll turn updates on there.

Looking at Thunderbird after that.
comm-aurora is back on. For comm-central needs investigation.
Mac is busted on comm-central due to bug 793394, but we have fixed nightlies for everything else. So
still has mode 700 (the actual BUILD_TARGETS are symlinks to that). Everything else has updates enabled.
Depends on: 793394
I have re-enabled the update tests for Aurora in Mozmill CI.

Are (will be?) there any automatic method to get away from a broken build (e.g. Aurora17.0a2 20120920042010)?

The only way to get off is to download a current build from, and install that over your current broken one. That should work fine, and not break your data.

comm-central is now ok from the build perspective (there were code issues in comm-central), and afaict all l10n builds have updated on the server.
comm-central mac is re-enabled too.
