Re: Error trying to update powerpc64 Jessie machine.

Hi Cyril,

Thanks for the clarification.

I am subscribed to the debian-announce list, and I read the message you mention when it first came out.  It doesn’t (at least to my eyes, I may be missing something) say anything specific about security.debian.org.

What do you suggest I do?  Should I just comment out the security.debian.org line in my sources.list?
