    For the past few weeks the Mac AppStore (in Australia) has been excruciatingly slow for me. (Read: took 5 days to download El Capitan) and now it is failing completely. It is throwing a (HTTP?) 503 error when trying to update iMovie.

    Anybody else experiencing this issue?

    Apple service status is claiming that all is good again, after showing problems earlier today but obviously nobody has checked because all is still not well. Server Error 503 on App Store and Error 9838 on iTunes. Just because they think they have fixed it does not mean they have. Don't they check these things before updating service status.

    I believe Telstra had an issue with a severed cable last week, leading to problems accessing Apple's caching servers.

    iTunes is now working but not the App store for me yet. It thought about it for the iMovies update and initially said "waiting" but that then changed to the previous 503 Server error.

    App Store now running in UK or maybe crawling might be a better description. Currently at around 75kB/s on a 40mb/s connection.
