I am running Stretch on my 64 bit Linux platform. This morning, when I run apt-get update as root I get:

root@AbNormal:/home/comp# apt update

Needless to say, I am a bit concerned. I run apt update several times a week, but have not had a problem. Google gave a number of solutions for Ubuntu, but I am rather loathe to mess with /ect/apt/sources.list:

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20171209-12:11]/ stretch contrib main

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20171209-12:11]/ stretch main contrib

deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

Comments will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
