The network is configured correctly. I choose my local debian mirror
("Enter information manually") and I make a mistake. It fails. I
"Go Back" and I get a new menu ("http" or "ftp") and I choose "http".
Then a new list of mirrors is proposed where I cannot enter the name of
my local mirror. From this state, I fail to retrieve the menu where I
could enter the name of my local mirror.

All the best.

"manual mirror selection is hard to find"

As said in the bug report the "Manual" choice is at the top of the

I think there is no perfect choice here. If the default choice is at
the bottom of the list of countries....then having "Manual" at the top
will be hard to find....and the opposite is true as well.

IMHO, we have the best comprimise we could have, here, and I don't
think this bug is really a bug.
