You know - it might be useful to say something just a bit more specific.

Like:
something is wrong with:
 your connection
 the server
 your worldview
 your politics
 etc.

ok so just the first two, really.
but something to relate that the problem is at the repo or in your
connection to the repo and not just a problem with the world.

what do you think?
