I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my computer. The other day I learned about Ubuntu One and signed up for the service. I placed a couple of files into my Ubuntu One folder and they were loaded to the web (which I logged into and saw). I then created a folder, placed a couple of files into it and marked the folder to sychronize with Ubuntu One. This worked as well.

However, as of last night the syncing has stopped working. I have placed a couple of new files into the folder and I periodically get a small window at the top right of my screen saying that the file x is being uploaded to my personal cloud. The message eventually goes away, but the file is never actually uploaded. So, it did initially seem to work but isn't now. Last night I thought I saw a message on the Ubuntu One website saying that the system was down for maintenance - I can't find that message again today.

The only other thing that happened last night was that at one point I received a popup window asking me to supply login information for Amazon S3. Although it didn't seem right, I put my Ubuntu One user ID and password into this window and told it to remember it.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Don't worry you're not alone my Ubuntu One is not working either for now. – DexterP17 Jun 4 '11 at 21:21
For future reference, you can keep track of those status messages at Ubuntu One's Twitter feed:!/ubuntuone – Christopher Kyle Horton Jun 5 '11 at 0:31

I think the problem is on the server side because I experience the same issue right now. If you want to know what exactly Ubuntu One is doing, then start a terminal and run the following command:

tail -f ~/.cache/ubuntuone/log/syncdaemon.log
