Oh, this is bad of course.

Run this:

# printf ',g/naturalnet/d\nw\nq\n' | ed -s /etc/apt/sources.list

(Or just remove all lines from naturalnet in the file in $EDITOR.)

Then retry, that will work. At fault is a (now former, for exactly
this reason) mirror of a Debian “bootstrap” package subset. Sorry!

<igli> exceptions: a truly awful implementation of quite a nice idea.
<igli> just about the worst way you could do something like that, afaic.
<igli> it's like anti-design.  <mirabilos> that too… may I quote you on that?
<igli> sure, tho i doubt anyone will listen ;)
