some mirrors don't work

Sat Jan 28, 2023 1:10 pm

When I try to

Code: Select all

apt update
there are three adresses where Raspberry Pi OS tries to fetch:
http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian bullseye InRelease
http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian bullseye InRelease
http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian bullseye/main armhf Packages
The first two succeed but the third one outputs an error

Code: Select all

Connction timed out [IP: 93.93.128.193 80]
Pinging 93.93.128.193 is successful too, without any significant difference in time with pinging other IP adresses.
I searched for alternative official mirrors but didn't find any. There's a raspbian.org mirror which is not the same as raspberrypi.org, is it supported and safe in general?

Work with me, I can't spot any difference in that line.

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt update

Mine is similar except:

Code: Select all

Get:3 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian bullseye/main armhf Packages
Ign:3 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian bullseye/main armhf Packages
Get:3 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian bullseye/main armhf Packages
Ign:3 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian bullseye/main armhf Packages  
  Connction timed out [IP: 93.93.128.193 80] 

and then

Code: Select all

Reading package lists... Done
E: Failed to fetch http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/dists/bullseye/main/binary-armhf/Packages Connction timed out [IP: 93.93.128.193 80]
I typed it manually so i hope there's no typos in there.
I don't know why there are two

Code: Select all

Get3
s and no

Code: Select all

Get4
.
Also:

Code: Select all

ping raspberrypi.org
ping archive.raspberrypi.org
ping raspbian.raspberrypi.org
all three are succesful, I think it's either the differnece between

Code: Select all

ping
and

Code: Select all

apt update
protocols etc.(I'm no network engineer) or somehow the pi can only reach the main directories but not the inner directories if that makes sense.

Its probably a mirror down, it happens sometimes. It appears the MythicBeasts mirror you are having problems with.

See if you can view http://93.93.128.193/raspbian/dists/bul ... ary-armhf/

Yes, it says
Index of /raspbian/dists/bullseye/main/binary-armhf
.
Is it possible to download these and install them offline?
Why does it show up on my browser but doesn't respond to apt?
Is it useful if i somehow increase the timout for apt until it can fetch this?
If i understand correctly, the raspberrypi.org redirects me to some other mirrors, is there a list somewhere to copy/paste into

Code: Select all

sources.list
?
