Problem getting packages with APT-GET with mirrors.digitalocean.com (on LON1)

Hi!
It seems mirrors.digitalocean.com is not working. I’ve tried to install a package with apt-get (php7.0-dev) but it doesn’t even start to transfer the package:

0% [Connecting to mirrors.digitalocean.com (95.85.0.50)]
Err:1 http://lon1.mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 libpcrecpp0v5 amd64 2:8.38-3.1
Could not connect to lon1.mirrors.digitalocean.com:80 (95.85.0.50), connection timed out [IP: 95.85.0.50 80]

Hello,

Same with Amsterdam server:
“… Cannot initiate the connection to ams2.mirrors.digitalocean.com:80…”.
I hope you will resolve this ASAP.

This is still an issue, do DO staff ever look at this ?

I fixed this by creating a new /etc/apt/sources.list file generated from https://repogen.simplylinux.ch/

I think that my errors are into the same issue. The only difference i see is that says that “Connection refused”
