APT install timeout

Hello everyone!

I had this problem using Devuan on Docker images and bare-metal installations when connecting to certain mirrors and even on pkgmaster.

Not sure if anyone has a better solution, so far mine is this adding an "Acquire::Retries" policy of "5" to apt.conf.d

echo "Acquire::Retries \"5\";" | sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/avoid-timeouts

Hope this helps anyone experiencing the same problem.

ciao

Re: APT install timeout

Thanks, ive experienced this. What usually works for me is ctrl -c the install/update in the terminal and try again. Usually second try works. But this little one liner is a gem.
