So all has been running fine with my VPS for as long as I've had it. Until recently.

Linode sent me emails about a scheduled migration. I had no idea what it was for, or why it was necessary, but I assumed it wouldn't be a problem. I just ignored the emails, and let it go through. Now, today, when I want to install some more packages, I find out that the linode mirrors that come preinstalled (I didn't ask for those, but whatever) are not responding. Doing 'sudo apt update' hangs at '0% [Connecting to]...'

Maybe it's a problem with the linode mirrors? So I use the default for /etc/apt/sources.list with That also doesn't work. So now I try a simple test: lynx ... Nothing. That also hangs. So it's the VPS I guess. Somehow the network isn't configured properly. Now, I _have_ played with the firewall (ufw) to allow through (in and out) some apps, but that was all working hunky dory before the migration. And even if I disable ufw, nothing changes. So I'm at a loss.

Oh, and weirdly... If I do 'lynx' it works as expected.

Any ideas on how I can debug this?

I'm sorry you're running into this problem. When you curl -v, what is the response? Is it connecting over IPv6? Can you try to run "apt-get -o Acquire::ForceIPv4=true update"?

I hope this helps!
