Use of mirror repositories for Ubuntu

Use of mirror repositories for Ubuntu

Just today, the US archives for the Ubuntu repositories were down again and thus servers were not updated. Thus I set out to see if there are better methods to overcome when those archives are down. As I thought, the use of mirrors is an alternative. Here is what you can put into your ‘/etc/apt/sources.list’ file and it will find the nearest mirror according to your location:

[code]deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt lucid-security main restricted universe multiverse
[/code]

This method works since Ubuntu 10.04 up to the latest one.
