Install sshfs using apt-get

Asked by Onno

I'm trying to install sshfs using apt-get, it returns a 404 each time. The curious thing is that I can open the link in the browser, so I can download the deb but can't install it using apt-get because it doesn't seem able to download.

I did not try but I suppose that no apt-get install will work.

I'm sorry my mistake. Somehow a piece malware managed to update my /etc/environment and /etc/apt/apt.conf with proxy settings. Just to get some extra hits? I'm not sure but it was a website with questionable material. These seem to overrule the system wide settings when using apt-get. After removing the settings it is working as expected again.
