Qt installer - Network error while downloading: connection closed



  • Hi all,

    I'm having issue with update since yesterday in the UK (London). It seems that there is an issue with my local mirror. However the file seem accessible when I try to download it through my webbrowser. I tried yesterday and today again and still does the same. Any way to change the mirror?

    I found a project on Github that used to allow the switch, but it seems not supported since QIF 3

    I tried with a new fresh online installer from Qt website and it does the same:

    Thank you for your help.

    Unfortunately, the current official installer does not support switching mirrors.

    Are you behind a proxy, by any chance?

    If the issue persists, please report this to the Interest mailing list (you must subscribe first) and encourage the Qt Company to support mirror switching.



  • Hi, thank you for your answer. No I'm not behind a proxy.

    I "solved" my issue by connecting to a VPN in another country, then the installer picked up another mirror and it worked.

    I will mark the thread as "resolved", but it's not ideal, not everyone has access to a VPN in a different country. It will be great indeed that the Qt company support mirror switching.
