Re: sources.list confusion.

@mmaglis . . . Thanks for taking the initiative to find that.  I knew it existed and was going to suggest searching for it but thought better of it since I was not inclined to do so myself.   IIUC (that's certainly not a given), all the packages are signed so should be secure even without https.

this is only required in ascii. since apt >1.5 (beowulf) it's already included in apt, and that package is just transitional & can go away

Re: sources.list confusion.

tails uses only https iirc : https://tails.boum.org/contribute/how/mirror/
and their RR still fails, just like devuan : eg. https://dl.amnesia.boum.org/
that makes sense, otherwise devuan would have to share private keys with mirrors, which is of course out of the question.

about https://deb.debian.org , i think it only has one -sponsored- mirror  and that's why it works ok.

in all mirror cases i've seen so far, if you want to use apt through https, pick a mirror that supports it..

Please use deb.devuan.org in your sources list with http NOT https.  It is a round-robin of all available Devuan package mirrors.

Finally . . . all Devuan mirrors pull from pkgmaster.devuan.org so please do not add extra load by using it in your sources.list.  Use the round-robin - deb.devuan.org - instead.

I made today a fresh install using the devuan_chimaera_4.0.0_amd64_netinstall.iso,
devuan_chimaera_4.0.0_amd64_netinstall.iso         12-Oct-2021 10:48    372M

My /etc/apt/sources.list contains 2 lines after the install

deb http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main contrib non-free
deb-src http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main contrib non-free

all other lines in the file point to deb.devuan.org

So this should be fixed, as it introduces confusion and additional load on my apt-proxy, which creates a new directory for this.
It should be fixed at least for daedalus.

Re: sources.list confusion.

@maintainer of isos

I tried to file a bug , but this is not possible with the bug tracking system
The bugs must refer to a package but 
/etc/apt/sources.list does not belong to a package.

the bug should be against the iso install

Re: sources.list confusion.

I mean that this sources.list was still working fine on my machines just before Daedalus became stable:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Yes, thank you! I did that and now I only get this message:

I don't really understand that.

I don't really understand that.

I am getting that same Label message. Is the sources.list now case sensitive? This is what I am using:

#

I think there is something wrong. I've had something like this a few times. Wait and see has helped. Maybe we should just wait and see. Maybe it's being worked on right now.

Default configuration of Devuan package repositories looks like this

Re: sources.list confusion.

Run apt update once and confirm.

EDIT for some background: The root of this problem is that the InRelease file for debian-security previously had the wrong "Label" setting of "Devuan Security", and that is what has got loaded onto your system while updating devuan-secuirty before while in testing.

Apt keeps a copy of all the "dists" files, such as

/var/lib/apt/lists/....InRelease

and it's that file that has

Label: Devuan Security

on your system, whereas the one in the remote repo was corrected to have

Label: Devuan-Security

when also it changed to

Suite: stable-security

That is what the Apt system (by apt-get) discovers and complains about. The apt program does the same, but then reacts by asking you to confirm that the new file is good rather than  just discarding it.
