I have a Linux AWS machine and i started having this issue a few days ago:

Err http://deb.debian.org jessie-updates/main amd64 Packages


Err http://deb.debian.org jessie-updates/main amd64 Packages


Err http://deb.debian.org jessie-updates/main amd64 Packages
  404  Not Found

100% [5 Packages 9098 kB]Fetched 10.1 MB in 1s (7356 kB/s)
W: Failed to fetch http://deb.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie-updates/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Exited with code 100

my CircleCI config.yml errors out here (on install aweswebsli):

- run:
      name: Install awsebcli
      working_directory: ~/
      command: |
        sudo apt-get update
        sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pip
        sudo easy_install --upgrade six
        sudo pip install urllib3==1.21.1
        sudo pip install awsebcli==3.14.11

some solution suggest modifying

/etc/apt/resources.list

but i can't find this folder/file on my AWS Linux.

Other posts suggest replacing this line

sudo apt-get update

with

apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update

without success. Any help is appreciated.

The error has nothing to do with Amazon or with your CircleCI configuration.
Jessie's repos have moved to debian's archive and you need to update the following file:

/etc/apt/sources.list

The new content needs to be:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie main
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie main

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