Download server issue breaks some countries in Africa and Asia

5.09.2021 | Frederik Ramm

In the past night, a problem on the download server caused us to publish truncated data extracts for the following countries:

In Africa:

  • Benin
  • Cameroon
  • Chad
  • Comores
  • Kenya
  • Mali
  • Mauritius
  • Namibia
  • Niger
  • Nigeria
  • Saint Helena/Ascension/Tristan da Cunha
  • Sao Tome and Principe
  • Senegal
  • Seychelles
  • Swaziland
  • Togo
  • Zambia
  • Zimbabwe

In Asia:

  • Bangladesh
  • Cambodia
  • China
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Malaysia
  • Maldives
  • Nepal
  • North Korea
  • Philippines
  • South Korea
  • Sri Lanka
  • Syria
  • Taiwan
  • Vietnam

The extracts have been reset to yesterday’s version but if you have downloaded an extract between 2021-09-05 01:00 UTC and 2021-09-05 10:00 UTC then you have got a truncated file. Also, if you have an automatic process that loads daily updates, and you have loaded and processed an update for any of these countries in that timespan, you now have a truncated database and need to re-import data. (This will not automatically fix itself with the next update.)

If you have not loaded updates during this timespan, or if you have loaded updates but not for the countries mentioned, then you are not affected. (You are also not affected if you have used the full Africa or Asia files, these were correct.)
