Error attempting to retrieve installation information from tool shed


I tried to install the toolshed tools on my local Galaxy, but I get an error both when I use the shed-tools command and from the web browser. Is it currently unable to install from toolshed? I think I was able to do it last week.

The error message is as follows

shed-tools install -g{PORT} -a ${API_KEY} -t test_tools_list.yaml

It seemed to be temporary. Now it works.

Thank you,

Hi @yukieymd

Both the Main and Test ToolSheds were recently undergoing updates. Issues around that are resolved as of earlier today.
