Dear Jason,

Thanks for the info. I could compile. Thanks for the advice too regarding installing amber not in root.

This may have meant a temporary issue with the Amber server (it's up now,
but I'm not sure if there were issues at the time when you tried updating).
It could also be a very slow connection.  You can also try lengthening the
amount of time that update_amber will wait for a response with the
--timeout flag.  So perhaps something like this:

./update_amber --timeout 20 --update

This increases the waiting time from 10 seconds (default) to 20 seconds.

Good luck,
