That's because you have this in your sources.list:

debhttp://security.debian.org/debian-security/  stretch/updates main contrib
security.debian.org tries to redirect you to the mirrors that are
nearest to you.

It just so happens that your host has IPv6 address from somewhere, so
apt tries IPv6 first, then another, and finally falls back to IPv4.

For example, from here it looks like this:

$ wget -S --spiderhttp://security.debian.org
Spider mode enabled. Check if remote file exists.

Therefore here security.debian.org = lobos.debian.org


Since prod.debian.map.fastly.net is reachable from here, I suggest you
to fix your IPv6 setup, or squash it altogether in case you don't
control it.

While I am most appreciative of your response, I don't have the fainest idea
as to what you are suggesting that I do when you say "Since
prod.debian.map.fastly.net is reachable from here, I suggest you to fix your
IPv6 setup, or squash it altogether in case you don't control it.
Simple.

If you configured radvd or dhcpv6 - double-check your setup. You did it
wrong.
If you don't, but used "iface ??? inet6" stanzas in
/etc/network/interfaces - remove them.
If you use NetworkManager, so some other nonsense - convince it not no
configure IPv6 for you, or stop using them.
If anything else fails, try this:

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1

Thanks for the detailed reply.

I used the installer defaults to configure the network interface.

Here are the contents of /etc/network/interfaces:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

and /etc/networks/interfaces.d is empty.

It would seem that there is another problem: dpkg --add-architecture i386 (as root) no longer seems to work, although it did when I ran it yesterday after reinstalling the OS.

However I just ran

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1, as per your suggestion and got:


root@AbNormal:/home/comp# sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
