  • Reports latency, status, and bandwidth capacity of the fastest mirrors in a ranked list.

  • Generates sources.list file using new mirror.
    • New mirror can be chosen from a list or selected automatically using the top ranked mirror (default).

Examples

Choose from the top 3 mirrors, including those last updated a week ago::

apt-select -c -t 3 -m one-week-behind

Find the top 10 mirrors, output latency info only, and don’t generate new config file::

apt-select -t 10 -p -l

After new sources.list is generated in current working directory, backup and replace to update apt::

sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup && \
sudo mv sources.list /etc/apt/

Supported URI Types

Currently, http and ftp are supported.

/etc/apt/sources.list should contain sources in the following format::

[deb|deb-src] [http|ftp]://mirror.example.com/path [component1] [component2] [...]
