[solved] Apt-get using strange mirror

Postby cchip » 2017-06-29 05:08

Hello,

I just run "apt-get install thunderbird" on a freshly installed Stretch and got a strange mirror in the output:

Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following additional packages will be installed:
  lightning
Suggested packages:
  calendar-google-provider fonts-lyx apparmor
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  lightning thunderbird
0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 32.6 MB of archives.
After this operation, 91.1 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
Get:2 http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 lightning amd64 1:45.8.0-3 [1,159 kB]
Get:1 http://gemmei.ftp.acc.umu.se/debian stretch/main amd64 thunderbird amd64 1:45.8.0-3 [31.4 MB]
Fetched 32.6 MB in 22s (1,448 kB/s)
....
....


I haven't configured gemmei.ftp.acc.umu.se anywhere. Where does it come from and why did apt-get use it?

This is my sources.list:

Code: Select all
#

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.0.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20170617-13:08]/ stretch main

deb http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free
deb-src http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'

deb http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main

A quick google of that web address makes me think it is a repository (or archive) for the non-free loaded iso and if that is the version you used to install that would explain why it is using it.
You could also check any files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ to see if they contain the repository in question and if you wanted to could remove it to prevent it being used again (at your own risk of course :) )

http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian is currently being redirected to http://ftp.acc.umu.se/debian

Code: Select all
Request URL:http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian
Request Method:GET
Status Code:301 Moved Permanently
Remote Address:194.71.11.165:80
Referrer Policy:no-referrer-when-downgrade


And "gemmei.ftp.acc.umu.se" is one of the offloaders of "ftp.acc.umu.se"
