Get Real VNC server first if you are running headless (Other VNCs seem to show some kind of display error when running GUI stuffs). First of all update & upgrade everything. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Then install Synaptic sudo apt-get install synaptic Enable VNC sudo raspi-config . Us...

Re: Help: Best alternative to default Raspbian Stretch Repositories and how to change it

After tons of trial and error, I think the best alternative is to use synaptic instead of apt . I have now u...

I don't think there is anything wrong with the repository. I think there is something wrong between your ISP and the server, but let's wait until we hear back from the hosting provider.
