Repositories accessible with ipv6 only?

I was tinkering with a vps today and was configuring it for ipv6 only, with no ipv4 connectivity.  I tested the network connection and it appears to be working fine.  I can access it with ssh, and from the ssh session, I can ping an ipv6 site by using the domain name, so the dns resolver is working.  I then tried to do an "apt update" and I got many errors such as:

Cannot initiate the connection to ( - connect (101: Network is unreachable)

Naturally the repositories are online and working fine.  Does the devuan repository system have ipv6 capability?  If so, is there anything different to be done to access it?

Re: Repositories accessible with ipv6 only?

choose an ipv6-enabled mirror, just like you'd choose an https mirror..

eg. this mirror supports it : and there are other mirrors too that support ipv6. not all, but a few..
