Cannot download RPi.GPIO on Stretch lite

Tue Jul 31, 2018 7:57 am

I have a brand new copy of stretch lite (27 June) on a Pi Zero W and it fails to get RPi.GPIO from The apt-get install finally times out and suggests I do an apt-get update but that also hangs at 0%. I know he archive is working because I tried it on one of my other pi's. Anyone seen this/ is there a simple fix or do I need to just make a new copy of the SD card.

1. AFAIK RPi.GPIO is already installed
2. Looks like you have a network problem on your Pi...
Do you use DHCP or static addressing?
Any other problem with Internet access?
Can you post the full output of 'sudo apt update'
