Debian, Ubuntu, and Raspbian Mirror at ETH Zurich


HTTPS Access

While we would like to provide HTTPS access for all hostnames pointing to this mirror, Debian prefers having primary mirrors to not have HTTPS for their ftp.* hostname.

If you prefer to access this Debian mirror via HTTPS, please replace by in your sources.list file.

Inoffical Security Mirror

Reachable as HTTP HTTPS FTP

Our security mirror is no official security mirror and only thought as local cache. See the Debian Security FAQ for reasoning.

Its updates are not triggered by a push, hence the mirror may be out of date. If you want to use it, we suggest to use it like this (you can also use HTTP instead of HTTPS if you want):

Debian 11 "Bullseye" or newer

deb stable-security main contrib non-free
deb stable-security main contrib non-free

Debian 10 "Buster" or older

deb buster/updates main contrib non-free
deb buster/updates main contrib non-free

So if this security mirror already has the updated package mirrored, it's fetched from there as it's the first hit for the newest version. If not, the newest package is still already available and fetched from the official servers.

Use at your own risk!
