[Aptitude-devel] Bug#925445: jessie-backports packages for amd64 have disappeared from mirrors

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.6.11-1+b1

Since 20 March jessie repositories (except LTS) have been removed from the official debian mirrors and are now archived at archive.debian.org, see following mailing list post


The post says that amd64 architecture is included in LTS, however all packages from jessie-backports have disappeared after aptitude update. Is this intentional? I have temporarily switched jessie-backports to archive.debian.org but it needs to disable the expiration check using -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=0

In addition I also use devuan jessie on another machine and this problem breaks jessie-backports for devuan, which has no archive.
