Re: Error trying to update powerpc64 Jessie machine.

Hi Rick,

This has little to do with the installer team (debian-boot@), and it
isn't (really) a powerpc-specific issue either.

Sure, jessie just received its last point release, and security support
is gone; security.debian.org will keep jessie for a few architectures,
but will be handled by the LTS team.
