Error with connections to Debian servers

Hello. I have two problems.

  1. Sometimes after the timesync on the Gateway I get an error “not estableshed” with the Tor circuit. The circuit was “estableshed” before the timesync was completed. This is normal? Screenshot:

  2. When I try to update the Whonix or install any program I have problems with connecting to the servers of Debian in Tor. Screenshots:

I try update Whonix.

Install Chromium
I get a long download witch error SOCKS proxy socks5h://localhost:9050 could not connect to vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion (0.0.0.0:0) due to: Host unreachable (6)

After I get normal install from www Debian servers

I tried to reinstall Whonix but it does not solve the problem with onion Debian servers. Sorry for ImgBB. I new user and I cant post more than one image.

ps. I understand I must disable downloading from the servers of Debian in Tor but i dont know how.

Similar problem when trying to update the host via Tor mirrors. I checked the Tor logs and they show 100% bootstrapped. So… one doesn’t need to be fucking Sherlock Holmes to conclude that the onion mirrors are down at the moment.

Be patient. Sit tight.

Same error here.

I have this error for more than a week. How can I disable update and insteall from onion mirrors? And update only from www?

you need to go:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/

so to change Debian repos:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list

then put # infront of the repo you want to disable and remove # if u want to enable it.

or you can delete everything there and copy/paste:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main

then press on Ctrl+x then y then press Enter

Link to documentation:

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Operating_System_Software_and_Updates#Non-functional_Onion_Services

nano is over the head of many users and
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:Open_with_root_rights is too much
to type in forums.

Thanks. I decide the problem. What about my first problem i mean first screenshot where Tor Circuit established after timysync not established? Should I pay attention to this? Should I fix it?

Hi chitas

sdwdate does not sync the clock until after a connection to Tor is made.

After they are connected to the Tor network, they use sdwdate (inspired by tails_htp) to set the system clock.

This is how sdwdate is intended to function. Nothing to be concerned about. :wink:
