Title: Unbound DNSBL update errors
Post by: jcdick1 on March 19, 2022, 08:36:04 pm
I have Unbound DNSBL enabled, and a selection of the built-in blocklists set in Cron to update once a day.  However, I get this error for each of the blocklists when it tries to update:

Code: [Select]
2022-02-21T16:18:21-06:00 Error unbound blocklist download : unable to download file from https://adaway.org/hosts.txt (error : HTTPSConnectionPool(host='adaway.org', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /hosts.txt (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0x8025ca850>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 8] Name does not resolve')))

2022-02-21T16:17:20-06:00 Error unbound blocklist download : unable to download file from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/StevenBlack/hosts/master/hosts (error : HTTPSConnectionPool(host='raw.githubusercontent.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /StevenBlack/hosts/master/hosts (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0x8025ca460>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 8] Name does not resolve')))

Is there some configuration I might have missed beyond the checkmark in the Unbound DNSBL config, and adding the Cron job?  I don't have any custom blocklist URLs or such.

Any insight is appreciated.

Might anyone know where the files are for the built-in DNSBLs?  Perhaps I can get in there and check why it can't find them to refresh.  I don't know for sure, but the error seems like it is trying to resolve just a base path, and not a full URL.

I'd check you have name resolution working on OPN. Curl,wgt or fetch or similar i.e.:
$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/StevenBlack/hosts/master/hosts

Doing that curl command dumps out the file, and I'm able to check for opnsense updates on the repo which requires it, so name resolution seems to be working

If someone could let me know where the files go, I could manually download and place them on the router, and restart Unbound.
