SOLVED: Temporary failure resolving http://us.deb.devuan.org

I installed Devuan from netinst. I chose no desktop because I want to create a Budgie system with no other desktops. The new system booted into console. Unfortunately I do not have access to Ethernet, so I am forced to configure wireless. I looged into root and executed the following commands:

/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 up
/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid SSIDatthelibrary
/sbin/dhclient wlan0

The last command took much longer (minutes) than I expected, but eventually it completed. Then I tried:

apt update

but a message kept repeating:

Temporary failure resolving http://us.deb.devuan.org

Did I miss a step or is http://us.deb.devuan.org taking a holiday today? I'm posting this from another Devuan system (same laptop, but a different SSD in an external enclosure) at the same library, so wireless is working at least somewhat well.


P.S.

/etc/apt/sources.list is as follows:

#

# deb cdrom:[devuan_ascii_2.0.0_amd64_dvd-1]/ ascii main non-free

deb http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged ascii main non-free contrib
deb-src http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged ascii main non-free contrib

deb http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main non-free contrib
deb-src http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main non-free contrib

deb http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main non-free contrib
deb-src http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main non-free contrib

There is no US mirror and County Codes (CC) are currently deprecated in Devuan.  Use the round-robin pool of repositories at “deb.devuan.org” via http not https.  The Beowulf installer has corrected this confusion.

Woops, I got this too, in an Ascii 2.0 installer. Guess I need to get the latest install media. I did remember that something was up with the "us.deb.devuan.org" stuff so I picked pkgmaster...

pkgmaster is the source for all the mirrors.  If it is used in sources.list, it will put on an extra load and could slow down the frequent mirror updates

@golinux

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I was using 2.0 media. I will correct my sources.list.
