apt-get update not updating repos. recently?


For about the past few weeks, I've been typing the apt-get update command; however, it has not been updating. I run the command and nothing gets downloaded, ever. No errors or anything. Any ideas or reasons why this would be happening?

What is in your /etc/apt/sources.list file? Could you post that?

The Debian repositories are just fine. I update nearly every two days, and it works great. There must be a problem with the apt-get command.
You will have tons of updates when you get it to work again...
Did you try to use aptitude ? I prefer it to apt-get (it is in text mode)

Code:
#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main

I don't use aptitude. I tried it, hit 'u' and at the bottom it said, "96% done, (stalled), then the box came up saying 0 kbytes/s, 0 bits downloaded.

What happens if you put a # in front of deb-src, like I have in my list?

It looks more complete because I added things to it


Oh.. make sure you have apt-listbugs installed, prevents a lot of trouble later on with buggy packages.
