APT hangs Debian 9 with update.
Not sure this is the right answer but I was getting a hang after the Debian updates and found it to be an issue with one of the links in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mariadb.list. I moved this file to my home directory and suddenly it has apt cycles correctly.

[IT HANGS HERE]
Update… they all seem to stop on:
There seems to be something in this file that causes the hang.
@primalmedia I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble updating the MariaDB. Sometimes, apt my try to update over IPv6. I don't see this message in the output you provided. However, to help rule this out, what happens when you add the -o flag to force IPv4?
apt-get -o Acquire::ForceIPv4=true update
