I am trying to update to Meteor 1.2.

But when I run Meteor update, it starts to run and get to

Downloading 8 packages                    -

  1. Chosen as BEST ANSWER

    It works now. I just had to wait sometime. I think the meteor package server was down. So it was just waiting. If this happens to you just wait some time and try again.

  2. I had the same problem (tried waiting or kill/re-running repeatedly) and I checked the status of the meteor package server, which was operational. However, after I ran “meteor list” something must have changed because “meteor update” ran fine. Could have been a coincidence but thought I’d share in case it solves the issue for someone else.
