Started getting "There was an unknown error while retrieving the price
quotes" at the start of this month.
Running Fedora 22 with gnucash 2.6.12
I know sometimes the websites change their formats etc which can mess
things up, so I have tried a few different sources, but it makes no
The odd thing is, if I use gnc-fq-dump I get valid data. e.g.
[mike at blackstock ~]$ gnc-fq-dump yahoo BP.L
Finance::Quote fields Gnucash uses:
symbol: BP.L <=== required
date: 10/07/2016 <=== required
currency: GBP <=== required
last: 4.8545 <=\
nav: <=== one of these
price: 4.8545 <=/
timezone: <=== optional
[mike at blackstock ~]$
It seems to affect all my UK quoted stocks, but nothing else. Anyone
got any ideas what is going on ?
