Yes, I used to get this a lot with ftp.ro.debian.org. I switched to using ftp.at.debian.org and got rid of this.

Interesting ... although I'm reporting this in respect of security.d.o I'm fairly sure I've also seen it with ftp.de.debian.org ... I suppose main repository 'Release' files will usually only change when there's been a point release, and mostly it's the security.d.o files that will be changing. I'll pay attention on the next point release.

P.S. Recently I ran apt-spy. It turned out ftp.at.debian.org is the best mirror for me. ftp.ro.debian.org didn't even make the top 5.

Good tip - I'll try that - our company's firewall is in Germany, but your experience shows I should check. Thanks.
