Please note that the Homestead issue tracker is reserved for bug reports and enhancements. We are not always able to debug Vagrant, Provider or Operating System issues, but will do our best to help. Thank you!


  • Vagrant: 2.1.5
  • Provider: Virtualbox 5.1.8
  • Homestead: Latest

A lot of issues can be resolved by simply updating vagrant, provider or homestead.

Note: Virtualbox users, please upgrade to ~5.2. You will show as up-to-date from the ~5.0 version when you About -> Check for Updates. You'll need to download a newer version of Virtualbox.

Host operating system

Windows 10

Vagrant destroy & up output

Provide a link to a GitHub Gist containing the complete output of vagrant destroy && vagrant up.
Do NOT paste the debug output in the issue, just paste the link to the Gist.

You shouldn't need --insecure. Depending on how Vagrant has their S3 buckets configured it may not support http. Nothing we can do at the Homestead level for this.

@svpernova09 I've tried without --insecure, same result happens. :|

Sounds like an S3 issue. Try wget
