When I try to login via browser (Chrome, Firefox) to Ubuntu One, I get following error:

Something has gone wrong Sorry about that. This problem has been reported to Ubuntu One engineers and we'll fix it as quickly as possible. This may be a temporary problem, so try again in a few minutes. You can also review the current status of Ubuntu One which may contain more information about this issue.

I can, however, go to machine adding page on Ubuntu One. I'm using only one computer, and it is listed there several times. I tried to delete every entries there and adding my computer once more, but it doesn't seem to fix the problem.

What blocks connecting my computer to Ubuntu One cloud? It happened ever since I remember. I really wanna use it to store my 100GB stuff, but I just can't connect :)

Can you check if your computer is connected to Ubuntu One? You can see this on the terminal by running:

u1sdtool --status

That should show online and connected as true. If you're connected and you're still getting an error when trying to log into the Ubuntu One site or your computer is not connected, then your best bet is to submit a support request at You don't need to be logged in to send the request.

Check your terminal after executing command:


Maybe you got any Python's backtrace or something. Worth try ;)
