Incidentally, although I don't think I've mentioned it, I have NO
problems with the "host" machine, just with the VMs.
I tried the FTP and RSYNC mirrors. FTP failed just like HTTP, RSYNC
said that it didn't have a transport defined that would work. That
seems to live in /usr/lib/apt/methods, and it's right. There is no
rsync in there.
I have searched through dselect on the main machine, and don't seem to
find anything connected to apt that refers to rsync. I am wondering
whether, even though there are RSYNC mirrors, APT can't use them, and
they are there for other purposes, like building mirrors.
Although there isn't a lot of activity on these machines, they do have
apache and exim installed, but the only place where I am seeing any
segfaults is with apt.
Wrong. I see one segfault from freshclam on a couple of the VMs.
