on my Raspberry with Strecth all of a sudden i cannot run apt-get anymore

It hangs on 0% working for ever. I'm connected to the internet because i can CURL, ping and everything...

if i try to install something... for instance

sudo apt-get install nmap

I get, very fast

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package nmap

Some for sudo apt-get upgrade

This is my /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source'
#deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi

Unluckily i cannot reinstall the SD because the raspberry is in another city and i log via ssh in it...

Everything else looks working good... but i cannot install or update any package

  • Try apt-get clean and then run apt-get update again. Does this have any effect? – Aurora0001 Jan 9 '18 at 17:46
  • no effect... also apt-get clean looks does nothing... – besmart Jan 9 '18 at 17:47
  • It isn't a bad sign if there's no output. Could you add what's in /etc/apt/sources.list with an edit? – Aurora0001 Jan 9 '18 at 17:51
  • The sources list looks OK. Perhaps take a look at some of the steps here and see if they help you at all? Particularly the deleting the package lists and trying to update again might be helpful to you. – Aurora0001 Jan 9 '18 at 18:00
  • unluckily none of the info in that topic helped me... i'll keep trying... – besmart Jan 9 '18 at 19:04
