I'm seeing this in Tails when I refresh the package repositories:
NB: I am not a user of Tails.
Nonetheless, I put the following line into a search engine:
Failed - 0B - InRelease - tor+http://vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion/ debian stretch InRelease
One of the results was this link,...
...which gives following (tor variant) example line in
deb tor+http://vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion/debian stretch main
Why is this happening and how may I fix it please?
The uri in the failure message, as you have quoted it in your message
to debian-user, is subtly different from the corresponding uri found
in the release notes: The uri in the release notes ends in
".onion/debian" and is followed by two words namely a suite "stretch"
and a component "main", whereas the uri in your message ends in
".onion/" and is followed three words "debian" "stretch" "main".
Maybe the extra space is significant, and should be removed?
Good luck. Hope this helps.
