Is there any utility that allows you to download the data from a nearby station, for example from underground weather, to fill the database with the missing data?
I was looking at wuderfixer but I think it's for the opposite, to load the missing data in weather underground.

Look at the wee_import utility.

Thank you. I did that manually. But what he was looking for was something that was a data source, like weather underground, and that would import the data between certain dates.

You still need to first Download the data yourself before importing it.
For weather underground there are some APIs but they're extremely limited and you need to have a station there to use them.
Plus, if I remember correctly, you can only download a limited history of your own station.
there are some unofficial and unsupported ways of getting the data by parsing the html tables created when looking at.the daily history for a station, but that's far from ideal.
Also it depends on how long your period is

Just to clarify a few WU related wee_import points. wee_import will import archive data from WU provided you have a valid station ID and API key. As far as I am aware (from limited testing) your API key will allow you to import data from any station. I am not aware of any limitations on how much history you can access/import, I have accessed up to six years of my stations WU history without issue. There is no need to manually download WU data before importing, wee_import takes care of obtaining the required data via the WU API.

Finally, I am not aware of any issues that prevent wee_import reliably working with the current WU API (other than the usually flakiness that WU seems to exhibit more and more often these days).

You're right, sorry. I didn't see that the utility was using the /history endpoint.
You can only download one day at a time but of course wee_import takes care of that by looping over the days in the date range
