apt-get update slow when LANG != C?
Written on 2010-03-29.
For a few weeks now, aptitude is really slow updating the package list –
downloading the lists is actually fast as normal but it always waits for a
minute or so with a
99% [Warten auf Kopfzeilen] (Waiting for headers)
message. I tried apt-get update – same problem.
Now the funny thing is:
LANG=C apt-get update or
LANG=C aptitude -u works
just fine! I also tested with
fr_FR and even
– always slow, so it looks it always occurs when
LANG is not set to C?
Anyone else noticed this problem? I skimmed through the bug reports of apt, but didn’t find a similar bug.
Update: Looks like google-chrome is the problem! Commenting out the
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list, as Jaime suggested in
the comments, everything worked fine again.
