Okay, this is helpful.  It appears to me that with GIT, you have to have more faith that everything will work correctly.  With wget, you get a chance to do the upgrade a little more slowly and in pieces.  Maybe GIT would be more appropriate when the updates are within the same "point" number (2.4.1, 2.4.2, 2.4,3).  wget might be better when moving between major point upgrades (2.4, 2.5, 2.6).

I don't understand the "firewall" comment.  What does this do?

Thanks.

How one uses git is a individual preference ... me, I'll attempt to use it all the time - when moving upwards from within a series ... 2.2 -> 2.3 -> 2.4 -> 2.5 etc.  When upgrading not in a series ... the process might be a migration which is not like an upgrade - as folks have been experiencing with the move from 1.9.x to 2.x.  Git might still be used with some part of it.

Git from behind a firewall

Git uses a proprietary protocol and it may be blocked by your firewall (port 9418). If this is a problem, you can use Github's http version https://github.com/moodle/moodle.git. It's a bit slower, so use the Git protocol if you can.

http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Git_for_Administrators

Every server/workstation that runs more modern OS has it's own firewall now.   Entities in Education/Industry typically do have a network firewall.

Since you remotely host, may/may not apply in your situation.

It seems to hang even restoring just a 15 MB backup file

After you cancel the restore, do you find that the course was actually restored?  Even though mine hung, like yours, the course seems to be restored.
