Julia US-East servers down? Here is how to update your packages

Newish Julia user. Experiencing the following issue when trying to update packages:

Per this thread, the environment variable, JULIA_PKG_SERVER, needs to be changed. Here is what I did:


julia> ENV["JULIA_PKG_SERVER"] = "us-west.pkg.julialang.org"

to set the JULIA_PKG_SERVER environment variable.

Then update your packages:
julia> using Pkg
julia> Pkg.update()

Just a general PSA.
