Description jluth 2019-12-03 08:25:18 UTC
In the last weeks i found some pending Microsoft Office 16 downloads that won’t download nor be cancelled.

This is well documented in https://community.ipfire.org/t/update-accelerator-problem/409.

Very interestingly, the same client is requesting these patches using two different URLs, one of which uses the wrong backslash.

Some URL mangler must be converting the backslash to %\5C, and when wget downloads this file, it doesn't mangle the name, and so the file is saved with the "\" when the script is expecting \%5C.

The temporary solution to cleaning these out (since the trash icon doesn't work) is to delete the contents of /var/updatecache/downloads/VENDOR/
