You have a list with mirrors in a text file, you can edit out this particular mirror if it bothers you.

I hit an error today when updating my Pis. It looks like apt is trying to use IPv6 which doesn't work with my ISP (Virgin Media). I forced apt to use IPv4 and all was good.

You can get IPv6 working in ten minutes from now.

I will upgrade to IPv6 when it is globally accepted. I have no interest in hacks for now.

It's fairly well used, it's been available in the wild for 21 years. Hurricane Electric isn't a hack, it's just a useful way to get IPv6 when your ISP (like mine) is still living in the 20th century.

IPv6 will suddenly become the fashionable feature very soon as the IPv4 addresses are already exhausted and NAT or CG-NAT is an absolute stinking pile of hackage.

Also having problems connecting.

Code: Select all

W: Failed to fetch http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/dists/jessie/Release.gpg  Cannot initiate the connection to mirrordirector.raspbian.org:80 (2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3). - connect (101: Network is unreachable) [IP: 2a00:1098:0:80:1000:75:0:3 80]
Do we have to switch to IPv6 to get this working?

Update: A quick google:

Code: Select all

apt-get -o Acquire::ForceIPv4=true update

@botura,

I'm in Brazil, too.

I solved this issue with this:

1 - edit the file:

Code: Select all

/etc/apt/sources.list
2 - remove the line:

Code: Select all

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
3 - add the line:

Code: Select all

deb ftp://raspbian.c3sl.ufpr.br/raspbian/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
Raspbian is now updating correctly in Brazil and with great speed!

Yeah, I switched mirrordirector to archive until the mirroring issues get worked out. It has still been a problem for me here in the USA.

Upper/lower case between https:// or http:// and the first slash isn't a problem.

so https://www.raspberrypi.org/ is identical to https://WWW.RASPBERRYPI.ORG/ and is identical to https://www.RaspberryPi.org/ it's only the sub-directories beyond that that are case sensitive.
