Help updating a Jessie installation to Jessie LTS




I already made an attempt, and I'm a little worried that I may have messed things up -- I'd like to try to recover and get back to a reliable Jessie system.

What I did and why:

I understood from some other posts on the list that the mirrored repositories for Wheezy and Jessie went away in early March, so (for Jessie) I found a post that told me what the content of /etc/apt/sources.list should be for Jessie LTS.

I then ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade below are the results.

I think I know how to fix one part of the problem -- I think I need to remove the references to jessie-updates from the sources.list file.  But, I'm fairly sure that won't solve what looks to me like the bigger problem:

root@s31:~# apt-get upgrade
Bus errorackage lists... 1%
root@s31:~#

Oh, an extra credit question: are there mirrors I can use for Jessie LTS or must I use debian.org?  If there are mirrors I can use, where would I find those?

Here is what I put in the sources.list file:

For Jessie LTS "/etc/apt/sources.list should look like this one:"

 deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
 deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

 deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

 deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free
 deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free

Here are the results I got from running apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade:
