    I’m currently have antiX 17 installed on a USB drive. When I launch sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade I get the following messages:

    W: The repository ‘http://mx.debian.nz/antix/stretch stretch Release’ does not have a Release file.
    N: Data from such a repository can’t be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    E: Failed to fetch http://mx.debian.nz/antix/stretch/dists/stretch/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    What steps can I take to resolve this issue?

    Cheers

    This is mine repo-list on antiX17

    $ inxi -r
    Repos:     Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list
               deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd
    
               Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-stable-updates.list
               deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
    
               Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
               deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free
               deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

    There is no mx.debian
    So my question is are you running antiX17 or mx17 ?
    If your question is how to change the repo, please tell.

    Hi,

    I’m running antiX 17.

    inxi -r shows the following:

    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list
    deb http://mx.debian.nz/antix/stretch stretch main nosystemd
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-stable-updates.list
    deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
    Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
    deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

    Is the mx repo there by mistake? If so, how do I select the antiX repo?

    You can see in your inxi -r where the file is you have to edit.
    Look at the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d , there’s the file antix.list.
    This you have to edit as root.
    Comment out the line http://mx.debian.nz/antix/stretch stretch main nosystemd by putting a # to the beginning of the line.
    Then create a new line: deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd
    Should look like this:
    # deb http://mx.debian.nz/antix/stretch stretch main nosystemd
    deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd
    When closing the file , save your changes.
    That’s it.

    That is a new zealand mirror. I’m not sure why you got that errors, unless something didn’t sync between the master servers and the mirror. Hopefull dave (or tim) will see this and check it out.

    edited by skidoo, in order to force this post past the forum’s “Akismet anti-spam” component.
    PSA: apparently, even role:moderator is unable to mark “un-spam” when a post contains unwrapped hyperlinks,
    so, when in doubt (or find that your attempted post keeps “disappearing”), use the _link_ insertion button thingie, eh

    So what changes must be made to keep all the “Active apt sources” systemd-free in the following /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ files, specifically for Debian Buster/Testing in antiX 17 ……

    • antix.list
    • debian.list
    • debian-stable-updates.list
    • onion.list
    • various.list

    Providing that you do not remove the systemd* pin from your apt preferences, systemd injection cannot happen, even if you change repositories.
    What should the source.list content look like?
    Let’s await advice from anticapitalista or someone running antiX17 who has elected to use “testing” respostories
