[Solved]Can we use Debian's official mirrors instead of Linode's?
Reason asked is because I have dependency insolvency with some stretch-backport packages and Debian v9.2 can solve it, although Linode's debian appears to be still on v9.1.
deb http://mirrors.linode.com/debian stretch main deb http://mirrors.linode.com/debian stretch-updates main deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
If you want the ability to download source packages too (most people won't care about this), duplicate those lines and replace the "deb" at the start with "deb-src". Additionally, you can add "contrib" and/or "non-free" to the end of the lines to get additional packages which aren't part of the main repository.
Some mirrors might be hours older than others, of course, but AFAIK Linode has a good update frequency. And this post is hours old by now anyway.
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main
And I have 0 updates.
But when I do:
I still get 9.1.
Then I saw in the
> Due to an oversight while preparing the point release, the usual update to the "base-files" package to reflect the new version was unfortunately not included. An updated package will be made available via "stretch-updates" in the near future.
So it appears version number will remain 9.1 for now, even though the system is actually 9.2.
