tx for quick response: saved my day !

I just did what you proposed, but downloads were very slow. I ssh-ed and
could do ssh -X machine so I could choose a repo server closer to home. I
could even do in Synaptic some updates.

Last step was to repeat the steps you mentioned, and now the machine is
happily updating.

Hopefully this will be the last round.

tx again
