It would be very nice to see a human readable error description.
Who says what when doing what?

What is:
Code: [Select]
packages.siduction.org:http: ?
the adress is: http://packages.siduction.org and works fine.

devil:

I quite understand any possible impatience.


My siduction. list reads:
deb http://packages.siduction.org/siduction unstable main
#deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/siduction unstable main
deb http://packages.siduction.org/fixes unstable main
#deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/fixes unstable main

I don't know how to check whether that list is disabled.
However, apt-get update is reporting as follows.
"Err http://packages.siduction.org unstable InRelease" and
"...Release.gpg"

And finally, apt-get update reports: "Failed to fetch..." and "Unable to connect to packages.siduction.org:http: "

devil: thank you for replying. Best regards.

@grady show us this output:
Code: [Select]
p="/etc/apt/sources.list";cat $p $p.d/*|sed -e's/#.*//'|grep deb
experiencing siduction runs better than my gentoo makes me know I know nothing

This can be only a momentary quirk during a mirror sync, as the sources.list is correct. Please try again.

You should change your debian.list to something closer to you though. deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian unstable main is in Sweden.

simply as root open "/etc/apt/sources.list" with an editor (nano or mcedit should do) and change the line
"deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian unstable main"  

to

"deb http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian unstable main"

save, done. This will enable apt to sync with an canadian mirror instead an swedish one.
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

@ ralul: Thank you for your helpful question

@ devil:  "momentary quirk": genau! My apt-get update just worked properly (without any tinkering)

@michaa7 & devil: The Swedish source appears to be working fine.
I'm not able to find a Canadian siduction mirror. Atlanta is closest I can find. Are you aware of a closer one?

@all: I'm now going to post another question separately (conflict: libreoffice dependencies.
Before I leave here: I don't know how to cppy from my tty1 screen to paste to my (IceWeasel) messages to you. I'll be grateful if someone will tell me how.

Thank you all for your patient help.

Univ. of Delaware is a little closer -- probably not enough to make much difference.

deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian unstable main  is not a siuduction repo, but a debian one. There should be a canadian mirror.

You need the Debian repo for the majority of packages you have installed (I'd say about 99,5 % of them). Only some artwork, fixes and a few customied packages are shipped through siduction repos.

So as long as you like to run siduction, you need one Debian mirror AND one siduction mirror. And each of them the closer, the better.
