Updating Beta v6 with error

I update Pi-hole version beta v6 as usual and all works fine other than one issue as shown in the image provided. “fatal: unable to access”, any idea what cause this issue.

DNS response time is slow for some reason.


Non-authoritative answer:

Name: github.com

Thanks in advance.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo nano /etc/pihole/install.log

That error shows that there is no DNS service active at that time to resolve github.com to it's IP address.

For some reason, the DNS responds very slowly, from to time, and I have yet to figure it out. New to this version of Pihole.

Thanks for replying.

Are you using Pi-hole as it's own DNS server? That's not an ideal setup, there's not really anything that the Pi-hole server itself needs to be blocked from.

What is the /etc/resolv.conf file set up with on the Pi-hole server host?

You think I should remove ?

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /etc/resolv.conf
"# nameserver"
pi@raspberrypi:~ $

Are you running unbound?

Is that the exact contents of /etc/resolv.conf? If so it's malformed and very likely why you have no DNS resolution on that Raspberry Pi.

Please be a bit more verbose in your responses, I do not understand what you are trying to say.

Sorry, the problem solved itself.

Please close the ticket.
