[All Platforms] The APT repository at xbian.brantje.com seems to be unreachable

To fix the problem, you need to manually replace the APT repository.

1. Open a SSH connection to your XBian machine like this except the default login and password is xbian and raspberry.
2. Then run the following command. When you are asked for a password, enter raspberry again.

sudo -s
echo "deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list

3. Then run these command:

apt-get update; apt-get install --reinstall lsb-release xbian-package-repo; apt-get update

and you’re done correcting the APT repository list. After this finishes you can again use any of the usual ways to update your XBian installation.
