Apt-get connecting to ‘security.ubuntu.com’
September 23, 2016
If you have server on Linode what ever Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04 and update the system using
apt-get update eventually it would reach a point where it got stuck.
$ nano /etc/gai.conf
and uncomment the following line:
# # For sites which prefer IPv4 connections change the last line to # precedence ::ffff:0:0/96 100
This allows you to still use IPv6 but IPv4 as the precedence that is generally more stable.
