I'm seeing if there is an alternate answer here before filing a bug. (I
believe) All of the servers here that have IPv6 configured hang while
attempting an update on security.debian.org. If I turn off IPv6 by
deconfiguring the IPv6 address, then the update goes through fine.
It might be a routing/firewall problem on IPv6 the way between you and
security.debian.org, since it works for me.
Do you succeed in browsing http://security.debian.org with IPv6 activated ?
Yes. I do a "wget" since it's a server without any windowing. Also, the
updates/upgrades had been working just fine until this one.
I tracked the conversation at the firewall to be sure the wget was going
through IPv6 and it was.
The Debian server it goes to is: 2001:4f8:8:36::6.
