Adblock Subscriptions Difficult To Update

Has anyone noticed in their adblocking software that uses EasyList + EasyPrivacy that it's been nearly impossible to download updates to them for several days now?

 

I've noticed any subscriptions I have which are stored on adblockplus.org are either nearly impossible to update or take forever - to the point it seems like they need mirror servers or something due to their unreliability.

 

Edit:

I've noticed it makes Adblock 2.45 for Chrome sluggish during browser startup, and slow to open the settings as if it's trying to update the subscriptions but it can't. Also any custom subscriptions added into it such as "Adware filters", and "Malware Domains" from the Known Adblock Plus Subscriptions page get deemed by Adblock for Chrome as "Invalid list URL. It'll be deleted" since it obviously can't update them.

 

Edit 2:

Are there any good alternatives to the Known Adblock Plus Subscriptions. And please don't recommend anything from Fanboy as those subscriptions cause nothing but problems on many websites.

Host file blocks have always been preferable to be, I've never needed adblock subscriptions and I haven't seen an ad of the web since I started using MSVP host file

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I stopped using Adblock Plus a few months ago when I discovered uBlock Origin.

EasyList and EasyPrivacy last auto updated 15 Dec.

Updates take about 20 seconds (at my pathethic web speeds).

Haven't noticed any issues with Fanboy subscriptions nor any slugginess with FF.

Backup now & backup often.

Didn't know they had mirrors so thank you for the suggestion. I've switched to the Fanboy mirror for EasyList+EasyPrivacy and Malware Domains and it updates quickly.

clicking Easylist shows 15 Dec.

so I clicked purge cache then manually updated and now it says 17 Dec.

looks like I need to purge caches more often.
