OK so far but repo.antixlinux.com is S L O W
Can you change repos or use the torrents?

I was adding Pale Moon and it took over 7 minutes to DL it from the repo, all else moved normal speed...

I guess the repos are hit hard today, give it some time to get back to normal speed.

Alternative antiX repos. The Netherlands one is up to date with the default repo Others should sync within 24 hours.

Italy also syncs hourly, and I just noticed it's not in your list.

The release notes mention "persistence (up to 20GB!)". in an earlier reference I had read "up to 6GB".

Is the 20GB cap due to technical (squashfs?) limitation, or does it just represent the largest choice offered via the app's gui?

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.
