404 Not Found [IP: 151.101.194.132 80] apt update Debian 11 Bullseye Solution The repository 'http://security.debian.org bullseye/updates Release' does not have a Release file.

This happens during an apt update and is related to an issue with sources.list, which is particularly troubling, if you are doing a "live-build".

Solution

The issue is with bullseye/updates which should be bullseye-security


Change this in sources.list:

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye/updates main

To this:

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye-security main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye-security main

 

If you are using live-build and don't need the security packages you can just disable it with:

 

--security=false

in your lb config line (eg. lb config --security=false)
