To address this problem of resolve repository speed you must know something. The default repositories (or original repo), are hosted on servers based in China. Which does not represent difficulty for most residents, except for those of us on the other side of the world. To solve this, there are mirrors in different countries and continents. We teach you to change them.
Recommended method: In the first instance you can go to the solution implemented by the developers in the graphical interface.
Go to Control center > Update settings> Change mirror where the list is displayed. Offering, in addition, to perform a speed test of each of them. And choose the most convenient according to your geographical location.
Please note: The repository of our community from 15.8 has become an official mirror of the distribution, you will find it in the Control Center with the name of Alicante.
Using the terminal to manage repositories
It may happen that this alternative does not convince you and that the store, or that the updates are not really working. That is why a few years ago we solved this problem by modifying the sources.list of deepin. Situation that does not happen with the first method.
- To modify this and force the system to work with the repository that we indicated, we made a few simple steps in the terminal. We recommend before choosing the same one in the deepin interface.
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
- Proceed to comment or cancel the active repo (there should only be one active mirror). for this he places a # in front of the line to comment Ex:
#deb [by-hash = force] http: //
- Now paste the new repository at the end. To exemplify, we will use the mirror our community:
deb [by-hash = force] http://mirror.deepines.com/deepin panda main contrib non-free
• Save the changes (save). You can do it with the keyboard shortcut: Control + o
• Then press on your keyboard: Enter
• Then you must leave the
sources.list with the keyboard shortcut: Control + x
• Now you must update again:
sudo apt updateand then I sweat
