The Stack Exchange Data Explorer is updated every Sunday morning; the first sites are already finished by 3am UTC. However, today this doesn't seem to happen; all I can find is posts from May 30th and older.

    The data explorer itself tells us that this hasn't happened. Navigating to the front page, it says "Data updated May 30 at 10:57" Jun 6, 2021 at 16:10

    Might they be waiting until Microsoft gives feedback analysis after the failover data is looked at, I wonder.

    All databases are 8 days old: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/1239509/… the good news is that failure of the job should put a mail into the SRE mailbox and I assume they attend to that when their Monday starts. And what a Monday it would be

Thanks for the report. There was a permissions issue which resulted in the failure, which should hopefully be resolved.

I kicked off the refresh and it's in the process of running. It normally takes about 8 hours to run, so it will be a little bit before everything is up to date.
