Everything has been discussed before over and over and over and that is
because there really isn't any valid docs online anywhere. There is a
lot of great general information but nothing specific that actually just
works. At least not for ppc64. So the dance continues.
Speaking of which ... I did find the menu option to configure the pkg
manager and that asks about a mirror AND it allows a manual string to be
plunked in there. See https://i.imgur.com/L7DcC85.png
So now I will test variations on what it says there and maybe I can pick
a mirror somewhere that works. However if "buster" is hard coded into
the pkg fetch process then I am just pounding sand here.
