Debian 9 - Use UK Mirror

If you are UK based and you notice that your Debian 9 server is updating from the US mirror or elsewhere, you may wish to change it to pull from the UK to speed things up.

To do this edit your sources file:

sudo editor /etc/apt/sources.list

Then fill it with the following:

deb stretch main
deb-src stretch main

deb stretch/updates main
deb-src stretch/updates main

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb stretch-updates main
deb-src stretch-updates main
