I'm trying to install Raspbian using the Raspbian Installer (i.e. not an image). But When I'm stuck when I've to to choose a Debian archive. screenshot

I always get an errors like Mirror does not support the specified release or Mirror does not have any suit symlinks.

I can use wget to retrieve content on the web. So, I have internet connection. How can I fix this?

    You're trying to add Debian mirror to Raspian sources. You can't do that. Please follow Jens Peter Nielsen's answer. – gurcanozturk Sep 19 '13 at 11:32

Here's my /etc/apt/sources.list

      deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ wheezy main contrib non-free rpi
  • This is rather old - anybody reading this later on will want to change "wheezy" to "jessie" now or probably some other Toy-story character in the future but NOT "sid" (as that is always the unstable development Debian version from which Raspbian is derived). – SlySven Dec 22 '15 at 2:36

You don't ever need to choose a Debian archive. Raspbian has it hard-coded. If you've changed it, change it back to Jens Peter Nielsen's example.
