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 result is that all Devuan packages from http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged jessie-backports have disappeared.

On a pure debian jessie installation it is possible to move to http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports and skip the expiration check by

aptitude -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=0

Is it possible to do the same thing for devuan jessie? Or, even better, somehow link http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged to http://archive.debian.org/debian for jessie packages?
