@julian It seems to be working better now, It still seemed glitchy immediately after upgrading it, but this morning it seems to have chilled out and seems to be working properly.
I try to upgrade a nodebb instance from some 1.2.x version to the latest (1.4.2 I think)
At this point the scripts hangs indefinitely, using no CPU time...
The upgrade can be aborted using ctrl-c, the resulting installation is unusable.
nodejs is version 4.7.2 from the nodesource distribution, on a Centos 6 server.
During the upgrade the following url is fetched: https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700
I was getting a 501 http error..
It was caused by the proxy, and solved by bypassing it.
The upgrade completed successfully.
