  method mirror broken at 1.3

Status in apt package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in apt source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released
Status in apt source package in Zesty:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  The mirror method always dies with a SEGV. It does not initialize _system but 
calls a function that sometimes uses it.

  [Test case]
  Use a mirror sources.list entry like

  deb mirror:// zesty main restricted
  universe multiverse

  [Regression potential]
  The fix is small, and simply avoids using _system if _system is NULL in the 
called method. There should not be any regressions due to this.
