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

The repository is not gone. It's been mxrepo.com for 2 years now.
Change the main.mepis-deb.org in the repo entry to mxrepo.com and it will work again. It's the same server.
The member who originally bought the mepis-deb.org domain drifted away after mepis stopped development & didn't renew the domain. It finally expired last week.
