dude I have a deadline for my dissertation in about 2 weeks and its about OpenWrt, I'm in full panic mode right now

what do you need...

Try building the thing, ain't that big of a deal; child's play for anyone working on their dissertation.

[off]
i might have mixed up some words, my english is not that high level, so I'm gonna need to get this done to have my bachelor degree... maybe thesis is the right word?

anyways, I'm not that of a network expert yet, so thats like nowhere near a child's play for me, haha

You can use OpenWrt mirrors:
https://openwrt.org/downloads#mirrors

A workaround:

# Temporary
umount /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf 2> /dev/null
cp -f /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf /tmp/opkg-distfeeds.conf
sed -i -e "s:downloads.openwrt.org:openwrt.freemirror.org:" \
    /tmp/opkg-distfeeds.conf
mount -o bind /tmp/opkg-distfeeds.conf /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf

# Permanent
umount /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf 2> /dev/null
cp -f /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf /etc/opkg/distfeeds.bak
sed -i -e "s:downloads.openwrt.org:openwrt.freemirror.org:" \
    /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf

So, I'm guessing running this directly on the openwrt shell allow opkg to function using the mirror?

Deleted my question about how to undo, maybe it should be why to undo? This seems pretty frequent...

Any idea why, on 19.7.3 was all good, I did upgrade of my GL1300 all was good and suddenly this thing happening.

I have just checked I can ping openwrt.org but not downloads.openwrt.org, very weird.

I just did temporary solution by @vgaetera It worked thanks mate.
But was is going on with this anyway.

$ dig +short downloads.openwrt.org

$ ping -c 1 -w 1 mirror-02.infra.openwrt.org.

looks like mirror-02 has issues.

hi,

im getting fail reports from freemirror.org. when using opkg update.

how do i temporary change the download link to rsync://mirror.kumi.systems/openwrt/ instead of freemirror.org?

umount /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf 2> /dev/null
cp -f /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf /tmp/opkg-distfeeds.conf
sed -i -e "s:downloads.openwrt.org:mirror.kumi.systems/openwrt:" \
    /tmp/opkg-distfeeds.conf
mount -o bind /tmp/opkg-distfeeds.conf /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
