Subject: Removal of jessie-backports from debian mirrors
Date: Mon, 25 Mar 2019 09:43:15 +0100

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.11-1+b1

Since 20 March jessie repositories (except LTS) have been removed from the official debian mirrors and are now archived at archive.debian.org, see following mailing list post

https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2019/03/msg00006.html

The result is that all Devuan packages from http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged jessie-backports have disappeared.

On a pure debian jessie installation it is possible to move to http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports and skip the expiration check by

aptitude -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=0

Is it possible to do the same thing for devuan jessie? Or, even better, somehow link http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged to http://archive.debian.org/debian for jessie packages?

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Hi,

thanks for the report. We saw it coming a couple of weeks ago and we
are working on a solution. Most probably, we will put together
something like archive.devuan.org to deal with such transitions.

Stay tuned.
