APT mess when selecting Anycast Worldwide repo

Hello,

When I select "anycast worldwide" repo, I get some annoyances:

First, via the terminal:

Second, though I pinned it to 100, deb multimedia packages fall and take priority over regular updates (see picture):

I've seen it today, you can either wait till the resync will solve the issue or you could select another mirror and do a refresh.

I got this problem for many days. I finally selected manually the mirror.

mirrors.evowise.com does have an invalid Release file. I wouldn't use that mirror until they update again. That one is in Romania. The mirrors.pidginhost.com repo in Romania doesn't have the problem.

Have a look here at mirror status - (antiX and MX repos)

Ok. Thanks to everyone for answering. I'll stick to my country mirrors for now.

Deb-multimedia doesn't use that mirror system, as far as I know.

Its agressive upgrades may be due to the use of epochs, but I'm not really sure. We don't recommend it using it, especially not leaving it enabled at all times.

Understood. Thanks, Stevo.

This Anycast mirror seems a bit instable or say at least delayed with updates. Maybe this is due to this "anycast" thing...
By the way it isn't just Romania, I understand the main address mirrors.evowise.com is in Romania, but it forwards the requests to one of their other mirrors based on request location. I could identify at least, which I guess can also be used durectly instead of the main url (without prefix) and may have a different update state:
uk-mirrors.evowise.com
ro-mirrors.evowise.com
es-mirrors.evowise.com
it-mirrors.evowise.com
ny-mirrors.evowise.com
la-mirrors.evowise.com
