The short explanation is that the update server is seeing pretty limited use atm. So in light of the low load, I've downgraded the server. That downgrade is still somewhat experimental; I've also noticed a few moments where the new backend just seems to refuse all connections for a minute or two -- which is pretty annoying. If these kinds of service outages do seem to be happening fairly frequently, let me know. I think I may need to switch back to a pricer virtual machine.
