[Bug 1583544] Re: an official mirror doesn't show in mirrors list in Update Center, Ubuntu 16.04

It's automatically run during an (upstream) build from the git
repository, which was on Jan 20. The mirror list is usually not updated
anymore then once it hits a stable Ubuntu release.

A better approach would be to ship a mirror list in the archive that APT
can fetch during an apt update.

Title:
  an official mirror doesn't show in mirrors list in Update Center,
  Ubuntu 16.04

Status in python-apt package in Ubuntu:
  Triaged

Bug description:
  There is an official mirror mirrors.cug.edu.cn and I have seen it
  listed in https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+mirror/mirrors.cug.edu.cn-archive, but I can't find it in Update Center in Ubuntu 16.04, Chinese  mirrors list. 

  It seems that the package python-apt ships a template file for the list
  of mirrors, and then it doesnt get updated over time.
  There is a function called get_ubuntu_lp_mirrors but it doesnt seem to
  be used.
