Ubuntu mirror broken?

I tried to add the following lines to my Ubuntu Bionic instance to do fast downloads with Sonic:

# See for how to upgrade to
# newer versions of the distribution.
deb bionic main restricted
# deb-src bionic main restricted

## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the
## distribution.
deb bionic-updates main restricted
# deb-src bionic-updates main restricted

## N.B. software from this repository is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED by the Ubuntu
## team. Also, please note that software in universe WILL NOT receive any
## review or updates from the Ubuntu security team.
deb bionic universe
# deb-src bionic universe
deb bionic-updates universe

If I run "apt-get update" today, I get:

Err:6 bionic Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Err:7 bionic-updates Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Err:8 bionic-backports Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Err:9 bionic-security Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]

Can you help me resolve this issue?

I did notice this today: if I go to and click "ubuntu" I get directed to and can repeat that process an infinite number of times, so perhaps there's a directory traversal issue? I don't know if that is a new problem, though.

Hi Kevin,

We just set up a new server for this week, so you may have caught us in the middle of getting everything synced up and stable. If you run 'apt-get update' on your machine, then try your upgrades/install, does it work?
