@Braiam Btw, this is unlikely to work with Debian. ;( Only works with Ubuntu.

@Braiam I didn't package it up, but I would welcome it if someone did it. :)

Did you ever manage to resolve this? I just ran into the same error.

gem update apt-spy2 should fix all issues. I haven't checked email yet. Took a few days off, but just noticed a bug myself. :)

Thanks for the answer and it's a great resource for setting up a mirror and I've considered that, but then I'd need this setuo in at least 3 different locations. I know I am picky here, but I still feel that mirrors.ubuntu.com ought to work. :)

I don't want to fix that server, I want to fix the selection algorithm and the lack of failover.
