    Problem with the apt-get command

    Hi to all, i'm new in this forum, and i hope to have posted in a correct section.

    To achieve my thesis on my University i use Netkit, the network simulator, but i have this problem.

    When i try to install or update programs using: apt-get install or apt-get update, i have this message "Failed to fetch http://ftp.it.debian.org".
    I need to install wireshark in netkit and the telnet daemon or something similar.
    I try to see my /etc/apt/sources.list file and this is its content:

    Thread moved to Debian for a more appropriate fit.

    Your sources.list output does not appear here.

    What does your sources.list and sources.list.d show?

    Hello!

    Please use the default font and color.

    Enclose all terminal commands and results in code tags:

    1. Click the # button above the text entry box, place your cursor between the code tags that appear and paste or type your text. Alternatively, paste or type your text, highlight it and then click the # button.

    2. Type [code] before your text and [/code] after your text. The square brackets are required.

    Re: Problem with the apt-get command

    Never seen a sources.list like that. I assume when Italy is the only mirror not made ineffective that you are in Italy.

    I would first try replacing that sources.list with only
    Code:
    deb http://ftp.it.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
    Sources.list.d is a directory. Try the command
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
    (Another place to ask is http://forums.debian.net )

    Thanks, i've tried
    Code:
     cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
    , and the result is:
    Code:
    No such file or directory

    All the output posted here it is the output of the my Netkit network simulator VM, based on a Linux kernel.
