I've seen this today as well. But Andres thinks it is a server side issue because I could do:
wget and not him (he was getting a 404 error) so we were probably reaching different caching servers or something.

A easy workaround is to edit 'maas-import-pxe-files' so that it does not download the squashfs images. squashfs images are only used as an optimization to speed up the installation, if they are not present, di is used: this takes longer but it works fine.

Indeed, a server-side issue.

Actually, while this is a server-side issue, it is potentially also a code problem since dailies only contain raring images. Leaving this open as a reminder to check.

Looking at it appears that this is only supposed to contain Raring images, and not Quantal ones.

Where are Quantal images supposed to be published, if at all?
