I seem to have great dificulty access the debian repos via ipv6
Connecting to ftp.au.debian.org (2001:388:1034:2900::25)
That's because ftp.au.debian.org doesn't support IPv6 downloads.
According to this http://www.debian.org/mirror/mirrors_full none of
Australian mirrors support IPv6. Below is a list of mirror sites
IPv6, compiled from the URL above. Hope you find this useful.
Another approach would be to turn off IPv6 on your box. Then aptitude
will not have to go thru the timeout before it tries IPv4.
