0% Hang on apt-get update.

Yesterday when doing the initial configure of my system I was able to use all apt commands successfully.

Today when I try to run
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

I end up hanging at
Hit:1 http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates InRelease
Hit:2 http://www.deb-multimedia.org stretch InRelease
Ign:3 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch InRelease
Hit:4 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-updates InRelease
Hit:5 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports InRelease
Hit:6 http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch Release
0% [Working]


Things I have tried

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::ForceIPv4=true

This does not change result.

I tried commenting out new repos in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
as well as using a different mirror for the debian repos.

I tried with all servers commented out
0% [Working]


I can ping ftp.debian.org as well as ftp.us.debian.org.

I also tried clearing cache with
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoclean


What other steps could I take to troubleshoot this issue?

I don't know where you are in the world...

Clue

If you click on the blue in your post Hit 3 to Hit 6 do not exist.

Try putting a / at the end of each e.g. http://ftp.debian.org/debian/

What does your sources list say? And where in the world are you?

I'm in the US.

and in testing I skipped over commenting out a source in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
The one I skipped was of course what was causing the issue.

Thank you for your response. I appreciate your time.
