How many times do I have to explain that this is not true?
EVERY user of 11.2 has that repository on AUTOREFRESH active, because that is the default installation?

AUTOTRFRESH sources ON by default on all installations of _11.2_
Is it clear now? Ufff...
If you don't believe me, just have a look at the links I posted of several threads in the forum, of people having been impacted by this issue for several days.
Why on earth would several complete newbees, or a very experienced user like me, be hit by this problem, if it wasn't because autorefresh was on?
The impact is lower because it is only on 11.2. On 11.3 the default is different.
Actually I made a mistake while publishing Milestone2 and it was noticed a day later, but the fix was incomplete, so it took til saturday to fix.
