amd64 stable netinstall failing repeatedly 'scanning the mirror'

Hi. I'm stuck in the DC and it's getting cold!

I'm trying to install debian-9.8.0-amd64-netinst.iso using the
non-graphical installer. All is fine till I hit the 'configure apt'
stage, when it simply hangs at 'scanning the mirror'.

I can still ping the network. I've tried three different mirrors.

Any thoughts?
