Whats the security updates now for the sources.list for etch/Debian?


Whats the security updates now for the sources.list for etch/Debian?
For three weeks now after installing etch I have been unable to Goggle
up or find one that works.

I have found many that don't work, I sure would like to get the right one
for etch. Heres the last one I tried, but don't work:

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free

BTW I am in California if that helps.

That's the correct one. I use it weekly with no issues.

Whats the security updates now for the sources.list for etch/Debian?

This is the errors I keep getting:

http://security.debian.org/etch/upda...6/Packages.gz: 404 Not Found [IP: 212.211.132.250 80]
http://security.debian.org/etch/upda...6/Packages.gz: 404 Not Found [IP: 212.211.132.250 80]


and this is my sources.list:

##################
# sources.list generated by apt-spy v3.1
##################
deb http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian etch main contrib non-free
deb-src http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian etch main contrib non-free
deb ftp://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian etch main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/etch/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free

So, what is wrong with my sources.list to keep getting these errors?

I would edit it to remove the duplicates and the one wrong line (as identified above):
Code:
deb http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian etch main contrib non-free  
deb-src http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian etch main contrib non-free 
#deb ftp://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian etch main contrib non-free 
#deb http://security.debian.org/etch/updates main contrib non-free  
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free  
deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
I'm also not sure if there is a deb-src for security.debian.org, though i suppose there must be...

Yes there is
http://security.debian.org/dists/etc...s/main/source/
Nice spot on the duplicate. I thought apt-get refuses to update with duplicate.

Now that I look at it, I suppose it might not count as duplicate since one is ftp and the other is http, but it's still redundant...

Ah good spot again
That's why it didn't shout.
